About Biosecurity at Murdoch University

In a globally connected world where trade is ever-increasing, and people are moving around the globe at unprecedented rates, the risk of spreading exotic organisms is higher than ever. Biosecurity is fundamental to managing the threat posed by pests and diseases, and is of vital importance to world trade, environmental protection, and agriculture.

Learn how biosecurity measures such as risk analysis, quarantine and surveillance are used to stop the entry and spread of exotic organisms around the world. You'll gain an in depth knowledge of rapid emergency response to an exotic incursion, and how to manage pests and diseases if they become permanently established in a new region and start impacting trade.

Biosecurity is a growing field of activity for many professionals involved in agriculture, the environment and international and domestic trade, to maintain agricultural and environmental integrity. It is also becoming increasingly important for private industry and the general public, as biosecurity protects us and our economy from harmful organisms.
