EFSA is making its plant pest survey cards available in an easy-to-use, interactive format. The cards are designed to help EU Member States to plan their annual surveys of quarantine pests to current international standards. They contain vital information such as the pest’s host range, distribution, biology and risk factors, as well as methods for detection and identification.
The first batch of 10 cards were published as “story maps” on the EFSA website in April, with the rest of the 28 existing cards to be adapted to the new format this year. The gallery will expand in the future as more survey cards are developed.
The story maps, which are smartphone-compatible, can be viewed here.
