“Just to the north of Australia lie the islands of Wallacea, one of many world’s nice biogeographical frontier zones. during this interesting publication, a multi-disciplinary group of Australian and Indonesian researchers give some thought to the problem of coping with invasive species, pathogens and different threats throughout borders either geographic and disciplinary. Frontier zones usually bring about interesting suggestions, and the authors have risen to the problem with large and incisive analyses starting from plant pathology to gender, neighborhood empowerment and cross-cultural figuring out. the full is far more than the sum of the elements, because of the dedication of the authors of case reports to interact in ongoing meta-analyses of the large questions that emerge on the borders in their disciplines.”

New Zealand, as a country which has undertaken advanced work in biosecurity management defines bio­ security, for the context of their country (Biosecurity Council 2000). 6 In view of the above and of the project’s emphasis on management as opposed to traditional science, we have adopted the United Nations’ (UN) FAO (Food and Agriculture Organization) definition of bio­ security as a strategic and whole-of-jurisdiction policy issue. According to FAO: Biosecurity is a strategic and integrated approach that encompasses the policy and regulatory frameworks (including instruments and activities) that analyze and manage risks in the sectors of food safety, animal life and health and plant life and health, including associated environmental risks.
