Data Source: EFI EUROFOREST Portal
TitleEPPO Plant Quarantine Data Retrieval System (PQR)
CreatorEuropean and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO)
DescriptionPQR is the EPPO database on quarantine pests. It gives access to data on: (1) all the pests of the EPPO A1 and A2 lists and of EU Directive 2000/29, appearing in the EPPO/CABI publication "Quarantine Pests for Europe" (2nd edition); (2) pests added to these lists since that publication; (3) pests of the EPPO Alert List; (4) plants of the EPPO List of invasive alien plants; (5) many other quarantine pests and invasive plants of interest to other regions of the world (data obtained from FAO, CABI or from the RPPOs). For each pest, it is possible to obtain lists of host plants, commodities able to act as pathways in international trade, and details of geographical distribution. Conversely, it is also possible to interogate the database to obtain specific lists of pests, by stipulating the host species, the commodity, and the country of interest. PQR contains general nomenclatural and taxonomic details on pests and hosts. It can be downloaded free of charge from the web page, or a CD version can be ordered.
