The world is witnessing a global rise in numbers of emerging invasive alien species, but identifying which species pose a pandemic threat remains poorly understood The disjointed international regulatory environment presents a significant challenge to biosecurity interventions at a global scale A novel way forward is through One Biosecurity, an interdisciplinary approach to biosecurity policy and research that enhances the interconnections between human, animal, plant, and environmental health… Expand

Viewing Emerging Human Infectious Epidemics through the Lens of Invasion Biology
Advice is advocated for increasing cross-fertilization between the two disciplines to improve prediction, prevention, treatment, and mitigation of invasive species and infectious disease outbreaks, including pandemics. Expand
Unwelcome exchange: International trade as a direct and indirect driver of biological invasions worldwide
Summary Biological invasions are synonymous with international trade. The direct effects of trade have largely been quantified using relationships between imports and the number of alien species in aExpand
Comparing environmental impacts of alien plants, insects and pathogens in protected riparian forests
The prioritization of alien species according to the magnitude of their environmental impacts has become increasingly important for the management of invasive alien species. In this study, we appliedExpand


One Biosecurity: a unified concept to integrate human, animal, plant, and environmental health

An Introduction to Plant Biosecurity: Past, Present and Future
Plant biosecurity is a strategic and integrated approach that encompasses the policy and regulatory frameworks that analyse and manage risks to plant life and health, including associatedExpand
Stronger regional biosecurity is essential to prevent hundreds of harmful biological invasions.
The need for increased regional co-operation to combat biological invasions should be incorporated in global biodiversity targets because regional biosecurity is essential to prevent future harmful biologicalinvasions. Expand

There is growing awareness of the environmental problems caused by the introduction of invasive alien species, described by the IUCN as one of the major threats to biological diversity. DespiteExpand
Global Health Security in an Era of Explosive Pandemic Potential
Pandemics pose a significant risk to security, economic stability, and development. Annualized expected losses from pandemics are estimated at $60 billion per year. Despite the certainty andExpand
Biosecurity, Trade Liberalisation, and the (anti)Politics of Risk Analysis: The Australia-New Zealand Apples Dispute
Biosecurity represents a rapidly growing area of social science inquiry. At the global scale, biosecurity measures adopted by national governments have often been represented as nontariff tradeExpand
