Ecological Database of the World's Insect Pathogens
Entry ID: EDWIP

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Ecological Database of the World's Insect Pathogens (EDWIP) offers
information on fungi, viruses, protozoa, mollicutes, nematodes, and
bacteria 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.

Ecological data in EDWIP include information on habitat, food, and
generations per year for the host organisms. Furthermore, this term
helps the user understand why certain subjects are excluded from the
database. The focus is on information that can help the user deal with
or solve ecological problems.

Quality
We have updated the search interface for EDWIP. The new interface
allows users to see more of the data at a glance, and takes advantage
of the relational structure of EDWIP to show summary data from related
files. For example, when you search the Host Classification and
Ecology file in the New EDWIP, you can view summary records of all
associations and negative test results for each host in EDWIP.

For a limited transition period, we are making both the New EDWIP and
the Original EDWIP interfaces available. When you click the SEARCH
NOW! link, you can choose either the New EDWIP or the Original
EDWIP. The Search Tips page contains basic instructions for using the
New EDWIP interface.

Note that data in the Original EDWIP files have not been updated since
June, 2000. New data have been added to the New EDWIP that are not
included in the Original EDWIP.

We are continuing to work on the interface, and as new features and
capabilities are added, we will announce them here. If you have
comments or suggestions that will help us make EDWIP a better
resource, please let us know. E-mail your comments to David Onstad,
onstad@uiuc.edu.
