Hungry Planet: Stories of Plant Diseases

Questions for Discussion


1. When traveling to another country or reentering your home country, what kinds of inspections have you witnessed and what questions have you been asked about plant and animal products you might be carrying? Have you experienced any agricultural inspections at state borders?

2. Could you make a plant-based meal with foods native to North America?

3. Given the current level of globalization of trade, are quarantines still a worthwhile investment in effort, money, and time? Why or why not?
