Development of Hazard Site Surveillance Programs for Forest Invasive Species: A Case Study from Brisbane, Australia (Report) Australian Forestry read online review & book description:

Introduction Traditionally, most countries have relied on border quarantine as the principal defence against invasive plant pests including forestry pests. Increasing pressures on quarantine services worldwide as a result of globalisation of trade and more rapid transport of goods and people has led to the adoption of additional strategies pre- and post-border. In Australia, pre-border activities to detect or minimise threats from forest invasive species include offshore surveillance, pest risk assessment for a range of species of concern and international cooperation on target pests (Cole 2003; Wylie 2007). Post-border, most forestry agencies within state and territory governments in Australia conduct some level of forest health surveillance or monitoring for both indigenous and exotic pests, mainly in forest plantations. A national Asian gypsy moth trapping program is funded by the Australian government and serviced by state agencies. Australia also uses passive surveillance in the early detection of exotic plant pests and diseases, enlisting the help of industry and the public through a variety of awareness programs.
