Project List Recruiting

Title Description
Pests not Known to Occur in North America Various sources have identified a number of organisms that may be problematic if they were to be introduced into North America. This list seeks to illustrate those organisms to provide identifiers with the images they need to verify an identification and create resources for educatiing others if the pest were to be introduced.
Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey The Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey performs annual surveys for a wide variety of pests that may affect agriculture in the United States. By providing images to illustrate these pests and diseases, we seek to enable state and federal partners to have a readily available source of images to be used in educational and public relation materials.
WSSA WeedList The Weed Science Society of America has partnered with the Bugwood Image Database in the hopes of illustrating every weed on the WSSA Weed List. Althought this is currently an unfunded project, we are pursuing grant opportunities along these lines and are seeking cooperation from additional partners.
Urban Forest Inventory Pest Early Detection The USDA Forest Service has been working with a wide array of stakeholders to build an expansion of the iTree street inventory program that would be able to alert users to new pest or disease introductions in the urban forest based on the signs and symptoms of the trees. We have been recruiting images to illustrate some of the known pests.
Southern Plant Diagnostic Network The Southern Plant Diagnostic Network created a list of organisms that are either known to be a problem on crops in the south or could be a problem if they were introduced. Images supporting this list are used by diagnosticians, extension agents, crop consultants and other people involved in scouting and managing pest and disease problems.
Northern Plains IPM Guide The Northern Plains IPM Guide is intended to provide current effective management options for insect and other arthropod pests and for plant pathogens affecting all major field crops grown in North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas. The organisms featured in this recruiting effort are mentioned in the guide.
Invasive Species Most Unwanted Certain invasive species currently have no images available in our database despite the potential impact that they may have in the United States. If you have images of any of these species, please post them so that we can better illustrate these threats.
Texas Exotics Training Many organizations in Texas are trying to keep new exotic species from coming in to the state and the country. This recruiting project focuses on a few of the subjects that people should be on the lookout for.
Millet Damage Agents Millet is a minor grain in the United States but is widely grown around the world. This recruitment effort seeks to illustrate many of the damage agents that can be found in the various millets.
Sorghum Damage Agents Grain sorghum is the third most important cereal crop grown in the United States and the fifth most important cereal crop grown in the world. The United States is the world's largest producer of grain sorghum followed by India and Nigeria. It is a leading cereal grain produced in Africa and is an important food source in India. Leading exporters are the United States, Australia and Argentina. This recruiting project seeks to illustrate many of the damage agents that affects this commodity.
EDDMapS Representative Photos Representative pictures of plants and animals are needed to display on the EDDMapS Reporting Page and in an iPhone app that is in development.
Most Common and Troublesome Weeds in the South The Most Common and Troublesome Weeds surveys are used to document shifts in weed populations and management systems. The survey is divided into four classes of crops: grass, broadleaf, vegetables and fruits, and aquatics and ornamentals. Each class is reviewed, in turn, every four years. The surveys are sent out to extension specialists in each state responsible for the crops contained in that year’s survey. Their responses for the top common and troublesome weeds in that crop are based on experiences with growers, consultants, and colleagues.
iMapInvasives Project iMapInvasives is an online, GIS-based, all-taxa mapping tool that aggregates and displays invasive species location data from multiple sources. It provides versatile mapping resources for monitoring and management projects, from a local to state-wide level. Data is received from partners across the state or province through batch uploads and quality-controlled online submissions.
Important Lepidoptera Many different butterflies and moths can cause damage to economically important commodities. Here is a short listing of Lepidoptera that we are currently looking for images of.
Legume PIPE The Legume ipmPIPE Network will focus on priority diseases and insect pests, with general support extended to disease and pest diagnostics and IPM strategies for non-soybean pulse crops including common bean, cool-season legumes and warm-season legumes. The goal is to develop, improve and enhance diagnostic tools and resources for priority fungal, bacterial, viral and nematode pathogens of pulses.
ScoutPro for Corn The ScoutPro app for your smartphone, iPad or other tablet devices will allow you to identify all weeds, insects and diseases in your fields, while additionally creating crop scouting reports enabling you to make better management decisions. This project is recruiting images of corn pests.
ScoutPro for Soybean The ScoutPro app for your smartphone, iPad or other tablet devices will allow you to identify all weeds, insects and diseases in your fields, while additionally creating crop scouting reports enabling you to make better management decisions. This project is recruiting images of soybean pests
Diagnostician's Cookbook The Diagnostician's Cookbook is an effort to compile standard recipes and techniques used by plant diagnosticians. Images in this project are meant to illustrate the tools, techniquest and tests used by plant diagnosticians.
Alabama Certified Landscape Professional The Alabama Certified Landscape Professional Program (ALCLP), based on the program developed in Georgia by the Georgia Green Industry Association and the University of Georgia, offers landscape professionals the opportunity to be recognized as the "best in their field" by mastering the Alabama Certified Landscape Professional test. Successfully used in Georgia since 1993, the program here is in its infancy, and marketing materials for those who pass the program are being developed to help you announce your achievement to your client base. The images in this project will be used in new materials to support the program.

Sweet corn pest identification and management This Great Lakes Vegetable Working Group project seeks to create a picture rich pest management guide to common pests that attack sweet corn along with brief pest management notes and recommendations. No chemical recommendations are given in this project.
California Invasive Plant Inventory from California Invasive Plant Council The California Invasive Plant Inventory categorizes non-native invasive plants that threaten the state's wildlands. Categorization is based on an assessment of the ecological impacts of each plant. The Inventory represents the best available knowledge of invasive plant experts in the state. However, it has no regulatory authority, and should be used with full understanding of the limitations described below. California is home to 4,200 native plant species, and is recognized internationally as a "biodiversity hotspot." Approximately 1,800 non-native plants also grow in the wild in the state. A small number of these, approximately 200, are the ones that this Inventory considers invasive. Improved understanding of their impacts will help those working to protect California's treasured biodiversity.
