EPPO Location

If you want to keep up with the latest invasive plants and plant pathogens to hit Europe and the Mediterranean, consider subscribing to to the EPPO Reporting Service. Put out by the European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organization, the report is a monthly document chock full of issues of "phytosanitary concern." In this month's edition, you can find out about new insect pests discovered in Italy, Germany, and Israel, and the discovery of Lantana camara in AndalucĂ­a, Spain. There's also information about an upcoming conference for people concerned with Solanum elaeagnifolium and a request for information about the plant's geographic range. While the EPPO Reporting Service has been around for a decade, it just went paper-free, so don't forget to sign up for the email subscription if you're counting on your monthly phytosanitary fix.
