Quarantine Pests for Europe

This book is the result of collaboration between the European and Mediterranean plant Protection Organization (EPPO) and CAB International (CABI), sponsored by the Commission of the European Communities, to prepare data sheets on pests of plant quarantine significance for Europe and the Mediterranean region. Coverage extends to insects, fungi, bacteria, viruses, nematodes and parasitic plants. It includes organisms that are found outside Europe and the Mediterranean and that present a risk to this region, as well as those that are present but have a restricted distribution and are subject to phytosanitary controls. A total of 188 data sheets are included, some covering groups of similar organisms. The format of the FAO model data sheet is followed, using standard headings: identity, hosts, geographical distribution, biology, detection and identification, means of movement and dispersal, pest significance (including economic impact, control and phytosanitary risk), phytosanitary measures, and a bibliography. The book is a definitive reference source not only for those with specific interests in plant quarantine but also for all concerned with pest mangement.
