The data requirements include the pest distribution, its host range, its biology and risk factors, as well as available detection and identification methods. These documents constitute a toolkit that contains pest-specific documents, such as the pest survey cards, and generic documents relevant for all pests to be surveyed, including the general survey guidelines and statistical software such as RiBESS+ that is freely available online.
The contents of the pest survey cards are updated as live documents available in the Plant Pests Story Maps Gallery
