About this book

Biosecurity Surveillance: Quantitative Approaches is a source of information on practical and innovative approaches to biosecurity surveillance. lt explains the foundation and concepts behind surveillance design, with examples of methods and tools created to deal with surveillance challenges. With supporting case studies and including current directions in research, it covers evidence-based approaches to surveillance, statistics, detectability, single and multi-species detection, risk assessment, diagnostics, databasing, modelling of invasion and spread, optimisation, and future climate challenges.
