Pests and Diseases Image Library (PaDIL)

PaDIL (Pests and Diseases Image Library) is a image library that combines leading edge technology in light microscopy, digital imaging and image manipulation. It provides ‘virtual specimens’ of a type only previously possible using low-power scanning-electron microscopy to assist AQIS officers and other front-line entities to identify pest species which potentially threaten Australia’s ecosystem using a visual key.
