Risks and Pathways Project: Preliminary results and biosecurity implications

 

Our Risks and Pathways Project set out to identify insect species from other countries that, if they ever reach Australia, have the potential to cause great harm to our natural environment.

The project also found that the world’s environmentally harmful invasive insect species are dominated by just one insect order – that of ants, bees and wasps. These social Hymenoptera accounts for 16 of the 17 insect invaders known to be causing environmental harm in Australia.

A preliminary results and biosecurity implications overview is available for download.
