Future surveillance needs for honeybee biosecurity by
Call Number: 638.150994 FUT
Publication Date: 2010
The Australian honeybee industry produces honey and other bee products for domestic consumption and export, through apiculture of Apis mellifera. The industry has an estimated GVP of A$80 million. In addition, the annual benefit of apiculture to general agriculture through plant pollination in Australia is estimated to range from A$4 to 6 billion. Because of the significant value of this industry there is a need for effective biosecurity. A component of this is the use of surveillance.
An invasive risk assessment framework for new animal and plant-based production industries by
Call Number: 632.6 KEO
Publication Date: 2012
Poor biosecurity management that results in the introduction, establishment and spread of weeds pests and diseases adds costs to and threatens market access for Australia's rural industries. In recent decades the foundation of biosecurity management in Australia, as in other leading agricultural economies and international regulatory agencies, has progressively moved to science and risk-based assessment, planning and action. This study reviews this trend as it applies in particular to pest and weed threat assessment and management.
