1:25 The Future of Biosecurity

Scientists have been working to predict what the future of biosecurity will look like.

And they say we need to prepare for more incursions of pests, diseases and weeds driven by our rapidly transforming world. The study is called Invasion Science: A Horizon Scan of Emerging Challenges and Opportunities. New Zealand contributor, Professor Philip Hulme, is from the Bio-Protection Research Centre at Lincoln University.
