Plant health surveys are used to control the introduction, establishment and spread of economically injurious organisms within the EU and requirements are set out in statutory obligations. However, the methodologies used to conduct the surveys are not defined and therefore the quality of survey data is seen as a significant potential source of uncertainty. The project has examined the methodological aspects of surveys to identify strengths and weaknesses in the ways that pests are surveyed.The current and emerging approaches employed for surveying plant health pests were identified in a first step through a systematic review of the literature (WP1). Since not all approaches employed for surveying plant health pests were publicly available,in a second step an inventory of specific surveys was created through the development of questionnaires addressing all the relevant issues of conducting plant pest surveys, which were sent to all relevant competent bodies within the EU territory (WP2). Following the literature search and the construction of the inventory, the findings were reviewed with an emphasis on assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the methodologies evaluated and how this influences uncertainties in pest risk assessment and the evaluation of management options (WP3). The final step of the work described case studies where selected species were examined in more detail and quantitative assessments were made of how surveys can be expected to perform. As a consequence of this the extent to which descriptions and reports of surveys provide enough information to allow their performance to be examined was assessed (WP4). The project has generated datasheets for 283 pest species and detailed results with conclusions and recommendations are reported.

Meta-information Database (INRMM-MiD).
This database integrates a dedicated meta-information database in CiteULike (the CiteULike INRMM Group) with the meta-information available in Google Scholar, CrossRef and DataCite. The Altmetric database with Article-Level Metrics is also harvested. Part of the provided semantic content (machine-readable) is made even human-readable thanks to the DCMI Dublin Core viewer. Digital preservation of the meta-information indexed within the INRMM-MiD publication records is implemented thanks to the Internet Archive.

INRMM-MiD was experimentally established by the Maieutike Research Initiative in 2008 and then improved with the help of several volunteers (with a major technical upgrade in 2011). This new integrated interface is operational since 2014.
