What is EPPO Global Database?EPPO Global Database is maintained by the Secretariat of the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO). This database is still under development but its ultimate goal is to include all pest-specific information that has been produced or collected by EPPO.
- basic information for more than 77 000 species of interest to agriculture, forestry and plant protection: plants (cultivated and wild) and pests (including pathogens). For each species: scientific names, common names in different languages, taxonomic position, and EPPO codes are given.
- detailed information for more than 1600 pest species that are of regulatory interest (EPPO and EU listed pests, as well as pests regulated in other parts of the world). For each pest: geographical distribution (with a world map), host plants and categorization (quarantine status) are given. All functionalities of PQR (EPPO database on quarantine pests) have been transferred to EPPO Global Database.
- EPPO datasheets
- EPPO Standards
- more than 4500 pictures of pests (including invasive alien plants).
- articles of the EPPO Reporting Service (since 1991).
