Biodefense

The neutrality of this page is disputed.

Biodefense refers to short term, local, usually military measures to restore biosecurity to a given group of persons in a given area - in the civilian terminology, it is a very robust biohazard response[?]. It is technically possible to apply biodefense measures to protect animals or plants, but this is generally uneconomic. However, protection of water supplies and food supplies are often a critical part of biodefense. Various definitions of biosafety emerged in different professions to guarantee non-human health.

Biodefense is most often discussed in the context of biowar or bioterrorism, and is generally considered a military or emergency response[?] term.
