Biosecurity is an integrated approach to the analysis and management of the risks to human,animal and plant life and health,and associated risks to the environment from living organisms.Biosecurity covers food safety,infectious diseases of animals including those that also aect humans,plant pests and diseases,the introduction and release of genetically modified organisms (GMOS),and the introduction and management of invasive species.Thus biosecurity is a holistic concept of direct relevance to the sustainability of agriculture,and wide- .g .g 2 ranging aspects of public health and protection of the environment,including -- I biological diversity.IN OTHER WORDS I ; .'.
