In the framework of the EU Q-collect project an inventory was organized of collections which contain plant pests, in particular quarantine organisms, their taxonomically closely related species as well as other organisms with similar diagnostic features, also called look-alikes.
The questionnaire aimed to gather information on the nature, size, content, availability, and quality of phytosanitary collections. Based on the inventory, gaps within the collections and the quality and availability of key specimens of plant health importance will be listed with a series of proposals to address them. The results of the project will be disseminated to stakeholders.
At the Q-collect Workshop organized in 2014-11-27/28 in Kleinmachnow some stakeholders asked for the reopening of the questionnaire to gather information from additional collections. The projects partners welcomed this suggestion and the questionnaire is now reopened.
