European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) | Pest Alerts | Scoop.it

'Pest Alerts' is maintained by the Secretariat of the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) and its aim is to share information collected on the Internet on new plant pests.

 

EPPO is an intergovernmental organization created in 1951 which currently has 50 member countries. EPPO is responsible for harmonization and cooperation among the National Plant Protection Organizations (official authorities) of its member countries. EPPO helps its members in their efforts to protect plant health in agriculture, forestry and the uncultivated environment (standard-setting activities and exchange of information).

 

On its official website, EPPO also provides:

- the EPPO Alert List (early warning on emerging pests which could present a risk for the Euro-Mediterranean region):
www.eppo.int/QUARANTINE/Alert_List/alert_list.htm

- a free database (PQR) on the host plants and geographical distribution of regulated pests:
www.eppo.int/DATABASES/pqr/pqr.htm

Asian hornet : distribution map (as of 2015-11-05)

Asian hornet : distribution map (as of 2015-11-05) | Pest Alerts | Scoop.it
Le Frelon à pattes jaunes, Vespa velutina, est un frelon invasif d’origine asiatique dont la présence en France a été signalée pour la première fois dans le Lot-et-Garonne par Haxaire et al. (2006). Les individus acclimatés en France appartiennent à la variété nigrithorax, dont la coloration est à dominante brune. Ils sont issus de femelles fondatrices qui auraient été introduites avec des poteries importées de Chine par un horticulteur du Lot-et-Garonne. Ce dernier avait en effet remarqué la présence du frelon autour de sa propriété dès 2004. L’insecte s’est depuis largement répandu ; il a envahi plus de la moitié de la France (voir données INPN) et a atteint d’autres pays (Espagne, Portugal, Belgique, Italie, Allemagne) (Villemant et al., 2006a ; Rome et al., 2009 ; Villemant et al., 2011a ; López et al., 2011 ; Grosso-Silva & Maia, 2012 ; Rome et al., 2012 ; Muller et al., 2013 ; Rome et al., 2013a ; Demichelis et al., 2014 ; Porporato et al., 2014 ; Witt, 2015 ; Arca et al., 2015 ; Goldarazena et al., 2015).
