About this book

Managing biosecurity is everybody's business. Managing Biosecurity Across Borders's multi-site, multi-sectoral research contributes to an holistic, evidence-based strategy for managing plant biosecurity in complex contexts. The intent is to provide a starting point for all stakeholders in the biosecurity endeavor – policy personnel at all levels of governance, planners and regional developers, non-government organizations, community groups and individuals – to plan localized strategies that 'fit' national needs and constraints and the way people live their lives.

In putting forward a 'strategy', we draw on many disciplines and cultural perspectives on a problem that is fundamentally a multidisciplinary and global issue. At the same time, the contributing researchers remain aware that such a strategy is always subject to local contextual factors and influences, indigenous and local knowledge and culture, and is regarded as a tool for planning, always subject to change.

Media reviews

"Just to the north of Australia lie the islands of Wallacea, one of the world's great biogeographical frontier zones. In this fascinating book, a multi-disciplinary team of Australian and Indonesian researchers reflect on the challenge of managing invasive species, pathogens and other threats across borders both geographic and disciplinary. Frontier zones often bring forth exciting innovations, and the authors have risen to the challenge with broad and incisive analyses ranging from plant pathology to gender, community empowerment and cross-cultural understanding. The whole is much greater than the sum of the parts, thanks to the commitment of the authors of case studies to engage in ongoing meta-analyses of the big questions that emerge at the borders of their disciplines."
