3. Getting to grips with good biosecurity practice


Landscape professionals can play a key role in biosecurity best practice, from species selection and plant establishment-friendly design to client advice and ongoing management.

Learn about the key pathways of introduction and spread that landscape professionals encounter day to day, recognise the importance of cultural as well as environmental factors in influencing the damage of harmful organisms, and get to know some of the more serious plant pests and pathogens emerging today.

As a result of attending this session delegates will be able to:
  • Identify the key pathways of introduction and spread in relation to the work of landscape architects,
  • Recognise the importance of cultural and environmental factors in influencing the damage harmful organisms can cause
  • Give examples of named emerging plant pests and pathogens
