Abstract: The Ecological Database of the World's Insect Pathogens (EDWIP) offers information on fungi, viruses, protozoa, mollicutes, nematodes, and bacteria¹ that are infectious in insects, mites, and related arthropods. Data in EDWIP include associations (or lack thereof) between pathogenic organisms and insect, mite, and other arthropod hosts. EDWIP also includes information on where associations have been observed, stages and tissues of hosts infected, and habitats and host ranges of the arthropod hosts. Association and nonassociation data in EDWIP are supported by bibliographic citations. All areas of the database are searchable. (....) ¹Because of the tremendous volume of information available on the bacterial pathogen Bacillus thuringiensis, we have excluded this species from EDWIP. For informaton on Bt, see the Canadian Forest Service's Bt Toxin Specificity Database. [Information of the supplier]
