PQR - the EPPO database on quarantine pests: new update
PQR - the EPPO database on quarantine pests (geographical distributions, host plants, regulatory status, pathways, and pictures) was updated on 2013-09-12. For users who have already installed PQR on their computers, data update is automatic (when opening PQR, users are asked whether they want to upgrade the database). However, it is important to note that because of their file size, pictures are provided separately and their update is not automatic. New pictures can be downloaded from www.eppo.int/DATABASES/pqr/pqr.htm [click on ‘Download Pictures Add-on (~60Mb)’].
