Actionable knowledge and strategic decision making for bio- and agroterrorism threats: building a collaborative early warning culture.
TLDR
In the EU project AniBioThreat, early warning is the main topic in work package 3 (WP 3), and a strategy has been generated based on an iterative approach to bring law enforcement agencies and human and animal health institutes together.
Agroterrorism targeting livestock: a review with a focus on early detection systems.

TLDR
Early detection systems have recently been developed for agro terrorism and deliberate spread of animal pathogens in livestock, including an agroterrorism intelligence cycle, syndromic surveillance programs, and computer-based clinical decision support systems that can be used for early detection of notifiable animal diseases.
Countering the livestock-targeted bioterrorism threat and responding with an animal health safeguarding system.
TLDR
This review provides an overview of methods to prevent livestock-targeted bioterrorism and respond to terrorism involving the deliberate introduction of a pathogen-targeting livestock and poultry.
Animal Biowarfare Research: Historical Perspective and Potential Future Attacks
TLDR
The potential spectrum of bioterrorism ranges from isolated acts against individuals by individuals to tactical and strategic military attacks and state‐sponsored international terrorism intended to cause mass casualties in animals, humans or both are described.
Livestock agroterrorism: the deliberate introduction of a highly infectious animal pathogen.
TLDR
The use of biological weapons that may be used to target livestock or poultry rather than agricultural inputs or equipment is addressed and the common priority disease agents that might be used in an agroterrorist attack and that are attractive to terrorists are outlined.
Accidental and deliberate microbiological contamination in the feed and food chains--how biotraceability may improve the response to bioterrorism.
TLDR
By applying biotraceability, the response phase during a bioterrorism event may be shortened and is facilitated for tracing the origin of biological agent contamination.
Agriculture emergencies: a primer for first responders.
TLDR
The results of the review are consistent with the hypothesis that more resources, education, and training opportunities should be available to responders as well as to producers, importers and shippers, international travelers, and the general public.
Essential veterinary education in emerging infections, modes of introduction of exotic animals, zoonotic diseases, bioterrorism, implications for human and animal health and disease manifestation.
TLDR
Training of veterinary students worldwide needs to face the new challenges posed by emerging infections, both from wildlife and domestic animals, as well as risks from bio/agroterrorism.
