IPM NEWS --- international IPM news and programs

I. IPM NEWS / APPLICATIONS international IPM news and programs International Standards Delineated A series of multi-lingual documents published by the Secretariat of the International Plant Protection Convention sets forth international standards for phytosanitary measures (ISPMs). These guidelines, published through the Food and Agriculture Organization of the U.N., are intended "to achieve international harmonization of phytosanitary measures with the aim of facilitating trade and avoiding the use of unjustifiable measures as barriers to trade," according to an official FAO endorsement.

The standards are organized under seven categories. Several titles have been published, but many are still in preparation. The list and status as of mid-1996:

Import Regulations GUIDELINES FOR PEST RISK ANALYSIS, ISPM Pub. 2, 1996. CODE OF CONDUCT FOR THE IMPORT AND RELEASE OF EXOTIC BIOLOGICAL CONTROL AGENTS, ISPM Pub. 3, 1996. PEST RISK ANALYSIS: SUPPLEMENTARY STANDARD FOR PEST CATEGORIZATION, ECONOMIC IMPACT ASSESSMENT, PROBABILITY OF INTRODUCTION, AND PEST RISK MANAGEMENT (in preparation). Export FRAMEWORK FOR AN EXPORT CERTIFICATION (in preparation). INSPECTION METHODOLOGY (in preparation). Compliance Procedures (in preparation). Pest Surveillance GUIDELINES FOR SURVEY AND MONITORING SYSTEMS (in preparation). REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PEST FREE AREAS, ISPM Pub. 4, 1996. REQUIREMENTS FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PEST FREE PRODUCTION SITES (in preparation). Exotic Pest Response GUIDELINES FOR PEST ERADICATION PROGRAMMES (in preparation). Pest Management (in preparation). Post-entry Quarantine (in preparation). In addition, other standards have been published (since 1992) as reference documents. All listed documents are available in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, and Spanish versions. As an example, Publication 3, CODE OF CONDUCT FOR THE IMPORT AND RELEASE OF EXOTIC BIOLOGICAL CONTROL AGENTS, (in category 1), lists the responsibilities of the exporters and importers of biocontrol agents (parasitoids, predators, parasites, phytophagous arthropods, and pathogens) for research as well as release including agents packaged or formulated as commercial products.

Blight Resistance Sources Developed An intensive program under way at the Asian Vegetable Research and Development Center (AVRDC) is directed at seeking and transferring sources of late blight resistance from wild tomatoes to commercial tomato lines that can be grown in tropical upland conditions. The late blight disease, caused by Phytophthora infestans (Mont.) deBary, is one of the most devastating diseases affecting tomato in many of the Asian, African, and Central American nations where AVRDC is working to improve vegetable productivity. Under common tropical upland cool and wet conditions, plantings can become severely blighted in a few days or may be completely destroyed in a few weeks.

The involved research team, led by L.L. Black, found that many tomato varieties previously reported to carry late blight resistance were not practical because, under tropical upland conditions, they failed to sufficiently withstand Asian strains of the disease. The search turned to wild species, several of which were found to reveal resistance when grown under the indicated field conditions.

AVRDC researchers are currently conducting a breeding program to incorporate the resistance found in wild accessions into advanced tomato lines. However, the jury remains out on whether the resistance capability will be retained in commercial varieties when grown over a period of years.

IPM MEDLEY --- publications and other IPM information resources

III. IPM MEDLEY general information, publications of interest, and other information and resources related to IPM IPM and Electronic Communication Eight summaries from papers given at the symposium, "Global Strategies for Electronic Communication of IPM Knowledge Bases," presented at Florence, ITALY during the 20th International Congress of Entomology last August, have been published in presentation format. The symposium, co-organized by G.A. Schaefers and R.E. Stinner, involved several institutions deeply involved with electronic dissemination of IPM information.

Special Issue Spotlights Gypsy Moth In view of the important pest status of Lymantria dispar (gypsy moth), an insect that has become a major defoliator of deciduous trees since originally introduced to the U.S. over 100 years ago, the MIDWEST BIOLOGICAL CONTROL NEWS (MBCN) has published a "special gypsy moth issue." MBCN's August 1996 issue (vol III, no. 8) offers a history of L. dispar in the U.S. as well as a useful summary of biocontrol agents of this pest, and a more in-depth overview of the fungal pathogen Entomophaga maimaiga. The issue also includes a review of the video, "Gypsy Moth: A Balanced Perspective."

Free Phytoseiid Bibliography Offered Two U.S. scientists have published an extensive, 355 pg. bibliography intended to provide a comprehensive list of publications from 1960 to 1994 concerning the mite family Phytseiidae (Acari: Mesostigmata). THE PHYTOSEIIDAE AS BIOLOGICAL CONTROL AGENTS OF PEST MITES AND INSECTS: A BIBLIOGRAPHY, by T.S. Kostiainen and M.A. Hoy includes several indexes to help readers locate publications on a specific topic, such as: species descriptions, prey species, general topics, and impacts of pesticides on phytoseiids. Copies of the publication, Monograph #17 from the Univ. of Florida, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, are now offered at no cost on request. Dr. Hoy notes that, "many predatory mite species in the family Phytoseiidae are important biological control agents around the world. They are effective natural enemies of various mite and insect pests on numerous cultivated and uncultivated plants. Presently, nearly 2,000 species of the Phytoseiidae have been described and many more may be waiting to be discovered." Current knowledge of their biology and importance as biological control agents is restricted to less than 10% of these species.

"Research interest in phytoseiids," Hoy says, "has increased steadily during the last 30 years. Phytoseiids have a worldwide distribution and importance, and papers have been published in a wide variety of regional, national, and international reports, journal series, or books in several languages. Several thousand new species descriptions and redescriptions have been published during the past 30 years. It appears that this information is unavailable to all taxonomists because problems with synonyms and homonyms are still quite frequent."

"The bibliography could also be used as a tool to identify important areas in phytoseiid research that have previously received minimal attention, and in this way help to direct new research to fill the gaps in knowledge of the phytoseiids," Hoy added.
