Managing aquatic non-native species: the role of biosecurity
TLDR
A survival experiment showed that many aquatic INNS threatening the UK can survive in damp conditions for 16 days but demonstrated that hot water is an effective biosecurity control measure, causing 99% mortality in many high risk INNS within 1 hour. Expand
Capacity, capability and cross-border challenges associated with marine eradication programmes in Europe: The attempted eradication of an invasive non-native ascidian, Didemnum vexillum in Wales, United Kingdom
Increasing recognition of the threat which invasive non-native species present to ecological and economic assets has led to a recent surge in international, regional and national policies. Within theExpand
Recreational vessels as a vector for marine non-natives: developing biosecurity measures and managing risk through an in-water encapsulation system
TLDR
Preliminary testing indicates that devices such as the decontamination berth may be usefully employed to contain the spread of existing marine non-native species and to prevent future introductions at marine transportation hubs. Expand
Biosecurity interceptions of an invasive lizard: origin of stowaways and human-assisted spread within New Zealand
TLDR
A phylogeographic approach is adopted to determine the source and human‐mediated dispersal pathways of New Zealand's only invasive lizard, the delicate skink (Lampropholis delicata), intercepted by biosecurity agencies in New Zealand to highlight the transport pathways, spread mechanisms, and stowaway characteristics of Lampropholis lizards entering New Zealand. Expand
Citizen science and niche modeling to track and forecast the expansion of the brown marmorated stinkbug Halyomorpha halys (Stål, 1855)
TLDR
The model highlighted the potential for further range expansion in Europe and illustrated the impact of climate change, and could contribute to a better preparedness of phytosanitary authorities either for the BMSB or other invasive pests. Expand
Computational Evaluation of DNA Metabarcoding for Universal Diagnostics of Invasive Insect Pests
TLDR
It is found that mini-barcodes between 125-257 bp can provide comparable resolution to the full-length barcode for both invasive insect pests and the broader Insecta, conditional upon the subregion of COI targeted and the genetic similarity threshold used to identify species. Expand
Four priority areas to advance invasion science in the face of rapid environmental change
Unprecedented rates of introduction and spread of non-native species pose burgeoning challenges to biodiversity, natural resource management, regional economies, and human health. Current biosecurityExpand
Health-associated infections and COVID-19 in Mexico: safety and health rules at work or job biosecurity?
The pandemic caused by COVID-19 has grown exponentially from the first reports from China in December 2019 to November 2020. Cases have been reported in more than 180 countries, totaling more thanExpand
Land use-induced spillover: a call to action to safeguard environmental, animal, and human health
TLDR
A mechanistic focus on the zoonotic pathogen infect–shed–spill–spread cascade is urged to enable protection of landscape immunity—the ecological conditions that reduce the risk of pathogen spillover from reservoir hosts—as a conservation and biosecurity priority. Expand
A united front against marine invaders: Developing a cost‐effective marine biosecurity surveillance partnership between government and industry
Successful detection of introduced marine pests (IMP) relies upon effective surveillance. However, the expedience of responding following IMP detection is often dependent upon the relationshipExpand

TLDR
These phenomena have two major biological implications: many wildlife species are reservoirs of pathogens that threaten domestic animal and human health; second, wildlife EIDs pose a substantial threat to the conservation of global biodiversity. Expand

A Unified Definition of Biosecurity
TLDR
In my editorial, I advocated a strategy of biological security that went beyond analogies to nuclear or chemical weapons of mass destruction and must build on those public health steps that are also needed to meet the challenge of infectious diseases and should include domestic and international components. Expand
Travel and the emergence of infectious diseases.
TLDR
Concomitant changes in the environment, climate, technology, land use, human behavior, and demographics converge to favor the emergence of infectious diseases caused by a broad range of organisms in humans, as well as in plants and animals. Expand
