Our research and extension program is all about helping fruit and vegetable farmers, consultants and extension specialists do a better job of managing weeds. We conduct practical research that brings new weed control technology to the farm, and incorporates new knowledge about weed biology and the agroecosystem. We develop and provide educational programs and curriculum to help our clients become better weed managers. We train students who will become the scientists, educators, extension specialists and farmers of tomorrow. These are images taken by students and staff while working in the Weed Workshop.
The objectives of the Conference are (1) to advance the science and practice of forest entomology, (2) to provide a medium of exchange of professional thought, and (3) to serve as a clearing house for technical information on forest insect problems of the southern United States.
We are a regulatory agency of the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services which works to detect, intercept and control plant and honey bee pests that threaten Florida's native and commercially grown plants and agricultural resources. Visit Website
ScaleNet is all about scale insects (Coccoidea): a group of insects comprising about 7,500 species. Scale insects vary dramatically in their appearance from very small organisms (1-2mm) that occur under wax covers (some look like oyster shells), to shiny pearl-like objects (about 5mm), to creatures covered with mealy wax. They spend most or all of their lives feeding on plants and are primarily important as plant pests in greenhouses, backyards, and on fruit trees. ScaleNet provides comprehensive information on the scale insects of the world, including queriable information on their classification, nomenclatural history, distribution, hosts, and literature.
Mactode Publications was initially created in order to develop educational teaching materials for the science of plant nematology. Scientific expertise is provided by Dr. Jonathan D. Eisenback of the Department of Plant Pathology, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, Virginia, USA and Professor Dr. Ulrich Zunke of the Department of Cell Biology, University of Hamburg, Hamburg, Germany. We specialize in educational resources, primarily for nematology, such as photographs on CD ROMs (for teaching, extension and web pages), as well as videos, books, posters, and 3D models for research and study, as well as for illustrating class lectures, seminars, and handouts.

The University of Georgia Museum of Natural History is an important repository of objects, artifacts, and specimens relating to the natural history of Georgia and the Southeast. The GMNH is a consortium consisting of 14 natural history collections that are supported by six departments at the University of Georgia: Anthropology, Botany, Entomology, Geography, Geology, and Plant Pathology. Each collection is the largest of its kind in the state. Visit Website
The United States Geological Survey's Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) database has been established as a central repository for spatially referenced biogeographic accounts of introduced aquatic species in the United States. The program provides species distribution maps, species information sheets, collection data, and real-time queries for species introduced into non-native waters within the United States.

Viruses in Imported and Domestically Produced Ornamentals” is a collaborative survey by Midwest Departments of Agriculture and the University of Minnesota to screen for and intercept virus infected herbaceous annuals and perennials. We diagnose and document virus diseases, their associated hosts and take images of plant symptoms to educate growers and consumers. By reducing the rate of viral infections of imported plant materials, we hope to reduce the risk of introducing pathogens of regulatory and economic significance to the Nursery industry and Agriculture. The project was funded through the 2011 and 2012 appropriations of the 2008 Farm Bill Section 10201.
EPPO is an intergovernmental organization responsible for international cooperation in plant protection in the European and Mediterranean region. In the sense of the article IX of the FAO International Plant Protection Convention, it is the regional plant protection organization for Europe. Founded in 1951 with 15 member governments, it now has 50 member governments including nearly every country of Western and Eastern Europe and the Mediterranean region.
