Abstract

Abstract Biosecurity is a relatively modern term with multiple meanings and definitions that vary according to various disciplines. This chapter provides a working definition and framework that responds to the current global emphasis on managing the whole biosecurity continuum—onshore, at the border and offshore—rather than focusing primarily on interventions at a country’s border. The chapter concludes with an exploration of implementation and resourcing approaches to biosecurity and an examination of the changing nature of biosecurity risk in grains with examples from both grain production and post-harvest storage
