Like the human immune system, a biosecurity system is a constellation of responses to externalattacks comprising of many facets, a number of which can change to optimize the response tothese unwanted intrusions. When either system hits the wrong target, or is inhibited or crippledsomehow, the consequences for the body and the economy can be dire. Like an immuneresponse, an effective response to an invasive alien species incursion may be the result of aseries of failed attempts or past experiences rather than being perfect the first time. In view ofthe enormously complex environment in which responses are made, this paper discussesinstitutional changes that may facilitate an adaptive approach to biosecurity policies wheregovernance is viewed as a multi-disciplinary, interactive experiment acknowledging uncertainty.
