Cover for The relationship between biosecurity surveillance and risk analysis.

National authorities that seek to protect plant and animal health and welfare follow international agreements and guidelines designed to inhibit the introduction and spread of pests and diseases harmful to animals and plants by conducting formal risk analyses. Analyses are generally initiated by:...

Cover for Surveillance for soilborne microbial biocontrol agents and plant pathogens.

Soilborne microbes are well known in agriculture as biological control agents and plant pathogens. Methods for their detection or diagnosis have been studied extensively over decades in order to identify the organisms, elucidate their biology, detect their presence and estimate their prevalence in...

Cover for Detection survey design for decision making during biosecurity incursions.

Biosecurity surveillance involves special challenges, in particular dealing with the fact that the target organism is usually absent from the surveyed area. In this context, surveys must be designed to detect small target populations and to estimate the likelihood that failing to detect the...

Cover for Inference and prediction with individual-based stochastic models of epidemics.

Stochastic models for the spread of epidemics in space and time are increasingly being used as predictive tools to help in the control of emergent pests and pathogens and as tools for the interpretation of observations of epidemics as they occur. This chapter provides an introduction to a...

Cover for Statistical emulators of simulation models to inform surveillance and response to new biological invasions.

When a new biosecurity incursion is detected, rapid response is critical to maximize the chance of containment and eradication and minimize the threat to important industries. However, inappropriate response can be extremely costly. For example, we might waste resources on trying to eradicate a...

Cover for Towards reliable mapping of biosecurity risk: incorporating uncertainty and decision makers' risk aversion.

Pest risk maps are an important source of decision support when devising strategies to minimize introductions of invasive organisms and mitigate their impacts. When possible management responses to an invader include costly or socially sensitive activities, decision makers tend to follow a more...
