A Resource for Pests and Diseases of Cultivated Palms - Symptoms of Diseases and Disorders

Dr. Monica Elliott has a new tool to help us evaluate Pests and Diseases of Cultivated Palms. She says it is "another set of tools to help with palm problem diagnosis". There are several hyperlinks on the webpage. The first link is for palm symptoms, including insect damage (the insect is gone, but the damage is left behind). The second link is a basic identification tool for arthropod pests of palms. The third link is for the entire resource. She also says "more tools in the resource are forthcoming by UF-IFAS and DPI staff that will deal with precise insect and mite identification and palm species identification".
