Expertly compiled and validated, and used by plant health organizations around the world, the Maps provide an essential complement to expanding knowledge on plant disease distribution around the globe.

Who uses Distribution Maps of Plant Diseases?
The Maps are a vital tool for those involved in phytosanitary decisions. In today’s world, where a large amount of international trade is taking place on a daily basis, accurate mapping of plant disease distribution has never been more important. The Maps have numerous applications such as the compilation of definitive lists 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.
