EPPO Project on quarantine pests for forestry
The EPPO Project on Quarantine Pests for Forestry ran from 2000 to 2005. It mainly focused on the risks from forest pests present in the former USSR, particularly in its Asian part, with regard to their possible impacts on the non-Asian parts of the EPPO region. The Panel on Quarantine Pests for Forestry was created to implement this project. The EPPO Secretariat collected brief information on the taxonomy, geographical distribution, host plants, biology and impact of 1365 pests and on the taxonomy and geographical distribution of the 653 main forest trees on the territory of the former USSR. In the process of prioritization, which took place over 10 meetings in various countries in the EPPO region, the Panel selected species that were more likely to present high risk for the non-Asian part of the EPPO region.
For these species, detailed data were collected and datasheets were prepared. The Panel performed Pest Risk Analysis for 45 species of pests and recommended 19 of them for inclusion into the EPPO A1 and A2 Lists of pests recommended for regulation as quarantine pests. Possible phytosanitary measures have been selected in the process of Pest Risk Management to reduce the risk of introduction of these 19 pests into endangered areas. In addition, the Panel prepared a Standard on commodity-specific phytosanitary measures for Coniferae.
- Species added to the EPPO A1/A2 Lists
- Species subjected to a PRA but which were not included into the EPPO A1/A2 Lists
- Information on all pest studied (1365 pests)
- Main forest trees of the former USSR (653 trees)
- Standard on commodity-specific phytosanitary measures for Coniferae (PM 8/3)
