This research is now continued by the REPHRAME project.
Detection of pine wood nematode in Portugal has increased the threat to the EU from this extremely dangerous pest. The key objective for this project was to develop an improved Pest Risk Analysis methodology that can be used at both local and regional scales to assess the significance of a plant health threat and, by use of a core model, to assess the consequences of outbreaks.
