Distribution Maps of Plant Pests cover important arthropod pests affecting agriculture, horticulture and forestry. Two sets of maps are produced each year, comprising mostly of new maps with a number of map revisions (where significant changes have merited a revision). There are nine pests per map set. By the end of 2018 the total number of different species mapped in the series was over 820. These figures do not include new editions, and many maps have been revised following changes to taxonomy or distribution, some a number of times.
This site contains the complete archive of the Distribution Maps as well as the very latest publications. The maps can be searched by preferred scientific name, or synonyms, and browsed by taxonomic group or by year. Typing ‘yr:2018’ in the search box will return all maps published in 2018.
Two sets are available. EEB Collection 12 offers 1,200 titles from the Bibliothèque nationale in Paris, on topics of history and governance drawn from works published across France, from the earliest incunabula to items dating from the late 17th century. EEB Collection 19 offers 1,000 titles about travel and journeys to Africa, the Americas, Asia, and many parts of Europe. All works in the EEB series were published in 1700 or earlier.

Full texts are only viewable for the parts of the database that we own, which is all EEBO, including EEBO TCP, but only a small amount of EEB (March, 2022, module 12, history/governance; module 19, voyages/travels). Choose advanced search. Search by author, title, L.C. subject heading, USTC broad subject classification, publisher, publisher city, or source library. Limit by date of printing, language, or certain features within the publication (such as maps or portraits). Include variant spellings or not. Use the browse indexes for best retrieval.
