Pest and pathogen distribution data (Bebber et al 2013)

Records of location (country, and region where available) and earliest recorded date of pest or pathogen incidence extracted from CABI Distribution Maps of Plant Diseases (DMPD) and Distribution Maps of Plant Pests (DMPP) published between April 2000 and April 2011. Species or pathotypes selected for DMPD/DMPP maps are not random samples of all known pests and diseases, but are those deemed in some way of interest (for example, of economic importance, or with recent reports of spread). This dataset was used in the following publication:

Bebber, D., Ramotowski, M. & Gurr, S. Crop pests and pathogens move polewards in a warming world. Nature Clim Change 3, 985–988 (2013).

This dataset is available upon request for non-commercial use. Please contact Tim Beale ( including details of your intended use.

CABI collates distribution records sourced from published literature and other databases to publish current distribution status of species in its products. More information can be found in the CABI Crop Pest Compendium. Data for some species are available to download and use under a CC-BY-NC-SA licence in the open access CABI Invasive Species Compendium
