Distribution Maps of Plant Pests are widely respected referenced sources of information on the global distribution of plant pests. Expertly compiled and validated, and used by plant health organizations around the world, these publications are jointly produced by CABI and the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization (EPPO) to provide an essential complement to expanding knowledge on plant pest distribution around the globe. The Distribution Maps are the most authoritative source of information available on the presence and extent of specific plant pests.

Distribution Maps of Plant Pests covers important arthropod pests affecting agriculture and forestry. Two sets of maps are produced per year, with nine (arthropod) pests per map set. Each map set comprises mostly new maps, but also some map revisions where there have been changes to taxonomy or distribution.

The Maps are a vital tool for those involved in phytosanitary decisions. In today's world where a massive amount of international trade is taking place on a daily basis, accurate mapping of plant pest distribution has never been more important. The Maps also have numerous other applications such as the compilation of definitive list of important species that are present in (or need to be excluded from) a particular country, or estimating the risks of pathways from sources where certain species are known to be present.

Presented as a PDF document, each map is compiled from a large variety of scientific sources and validated by an expert. Coordination and validation of most Pest Maps (arthropods) is presently undertaken at the Natural History Museum, London.

The backfile will include the most up-to-date map for every species previously mapped and multiple revisions of some maps. The Pest Maps were first published in 1951. The archive includes maps of over 665 plant pests. The most up-to-date map for every species previously mapped and multiple revisions of some maps are included.

Every distribution map is indexed in CAB Abstracts on Ovid and SilverPlatter making searching and browsing easy. They are also accessible as a standalone product.
