Navigating on the platform

Main rules of navigation on the site are presented here.

Navigation path and navigation tree:

The navigation on the QuantiPest platform is possible by clicking:

  • On one of the "Sections" fields in the navigation menu on the left of the page. You then choose the content (see the "Read more" field below the "Sections" field) you are interested in, and progress through the navigation tree until you find the page you are looking for.
  • On one of the levels of the access path at the top of the page: Home page> QuantiPest presentation > Platform use guideline > Navigating on the platform

To go back to the home page, click on "Home page" in the upper left corner.

The different sections of QuantiPest:

1) References and tools for pest and pest injury identification

The aim of this section is to gather the relevant information at the international level and to organise it so that it will be easy to use in order to identify a given pest, or to identify pest injuries for a given crop.

2) Methods and tools to quantify pest populations and injuries due to pests

The aim of this section is to provide protocols and methods for quantification of pests and pest injuries and to help identify the ones which are best suited for a given objective.

3) Methods and tool to help design sampling strategies to characterise pest pressures

When characterising pest pressure, experimenters need help to design sampling strategies that are adapted to their objectives. A number of methodological studies have been conducted and published and could be shared on the platform. In addition to helping identify the relevant published material, this section also contains methodological tools.

4) Training programs

This section provides a list of existing computer-aided training programs developed on QuantiPest.
This section also provides a methodological support for any group of scientists within the ENDURE network who would be willing to develop computer aided-training programs to help characterise pest population or pest injuries.

5) Search or contribution to a documentary database

Soon available, this section will include a large database of relevant information related to pest characterisation. It can be browsed by keywords.
