e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Exotic scale insects (Hemiptera : Coccoidea) and whiteflies (Hemiptera : Aleyrodidae) in Florida's tropical fruits: An example of the vital role of early detection in pest prevention and management


The warm, tropical to subtropical climate of Florida in conjunction with trade and travel patterns creates an optimal environment for the introduction and establishment of exotic pests. For some of Florida's tropical fruit species, such as mango, avocado, papaya, passion fruit, guava, and carambola, exotic scales, mealybugs, and whiteflies have been especially problematic. Examples of some of these pests reported to the Florida Department of Agriculture, Division of Plant Industry (FDACS-DPI) database will be described. Additionally, information on scales, mealybugs, and whiteflies that could impact Florida's tropical fruit crops, if introduced, is provided. The past and potential impacts of exotic scales, mealybugs, and whiteflies provide a good example of the importance of early detection of non-native pests. The Southern Plant Diagnostic Network (SPDN), coordinated through the University of Florida, promotes the early detection of exotic pests through diagnostics, education, and information technology. The SPDN, one of the five regions of the National Plant Diagnostic Network (NPDN), primarily links land grant university diagnostic labs in the southern region. Even though the SPDN/NPDN is mainly a network linking land grant universities, the SPDN/NPDN also communicates and cooperates with state and federal regulatory personnel, as appropriate for exotic pests issues.
