This study was supported by the Australian Centre of Excellence for Risk Analysis (now named the Centre of Excellence for Biosecurity Risk Analysis). We sincerely thank the experts who participated in the elicitation of priors, the biosecurity officers and volunteers who facilitated the collection of samples, and the scientists who performed the laboratory testing. We are also very grateful to Andrew Robinson, Bonnie Wintle, Marissa McBride and Mark Burgman for their advice. Finally, we appreciate the time taken by two anonymous reviewers for providing detailed comments which have greatly improved the manuscript.
