MELLO, Jacira Salgueiro; SILVA, Marizete Pereira da e CARDOSO, Telma Abdalla de Oliveira. Linking Terminology in order to understand biosafety. Physis [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.1, pp.239-252. ISSN 1809-4481. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-73312012000100013.
This paper aims to outline some terms within the scope of a new area of knowledge called "Biosafety". It also intends to point out that these terms relate to several chains of thought among various fields of knowledge. This can lead to barriers in public understanding and implementation of research and communication ability in the scientific community. Research on use of terminology which is being applied in the construction of this field represents a growing concern.
