Geographical distribution information for pests in Russia
In the past, EPPO held information on the geographical distribution of pests in the USSR. Recently, it has been possible in many cases to obtain specific information for pests in former Soviet republics. For the Russian Federation itself, this information was related to three very large areas (European Russia, Siberia, Far East), and this is how the information appears in the PQR data base system.
After discussion with the Quarantine Inspection Service of Russia, it was noted first that information on quarantine pests of the Russian A2 list is available for each of the provinces, territories and republics of the Russian Federation (76 areas in all). Such information will be made available progressively in the Reporting Service. It has also been agreed that information on other pests should relate to more useful units than the three referred to above. Six units have been agreed for future reporting purposes: Northern, Central and Southern Russia; Western and Eastern Siberia; Far East. These can be specifically defined as follows:
Arkhangel'sk, Kareliya, Komi, Murmansk
