Species information portals
Information portals for featured species, including:
- Fall armyworm (Spodoptera frugiperda)
- Tomato leafminer (Tuta absoluta)
- Parthenium weed (Parthenium hysterophorus)
Species portals contain both technical information for researchers and pest risk assessors, and practical resources for farmers, protected area managers, plant protection officers and quarantine officers.
They form a central repository for information resources collated from a wide variety of contributors, including many of the key organisations collaborating in the FAO-led Framework for Partnership for Sustainable Management of the Fall Armyworm in Africa.
Practical information resources
Over 5,000 new practical information resources have been added, including factsheets and pest management decision guides for identification and management of invasive species.
Fully referenced sections on taxonomy and nomenclature, distribution, habitat, identification, biology and ecology, species associations, pathways for introduction, impacts and management, complemented by images and maps, and are supported by abstracts and full text articles.
With new easy linking to our toolbox of apps, Horizon Scanning Tool and pest alerts.
