About Agromyzidae of the World
Arthropods of Economic Importance. Agromyzidae of the World
Welcome to this contribution on an arthropod group of economic importance. This project provides information on and tools for the identification of miner flies of economic importance (Diptera: Agromyzidae).
The series 'Arthropods of Economic Importance'
'Arthropods of Economic Importance' is a joint project of the Zoological museum of the University of Amsterdam and the Expert Center for Taxonomic Identification (ETI). The project aims to provide both specialists and non-specialists with easy-to-use tools for the species recognition of insects and mites of economic importance in agriculture, horticulture and forestry.
The end product is a series of interactive CD-ROMs based on ETI's Linnaeus II software for biodiversity documentation and species identification. Each CD-ROM contains up-to-date taxonomic (biodiversity) information on economically important species and related non-pest species, and a computer-assisted identification key. A cross-reference system for the major host plants, an illustrated glossary to technical terms and a section on methodology are also included.

Regional Digital Keys for Identification of Arthropod Pests
The University of Amsterdam, the Expert Center for Taxonomic Identification, Amsterdam, CAB International and partners in the developing countries are collaborating in the development of Regional Keys, using BioNET-INTERNATIONAL's networks as a mechanism. The high quality, global digital keys from the 'Arthropods of Economic Importance' provide the information for more focussed national and regional keys, to which specific local information is added. This 'Regional Keys' programme is a contribution to the efforts of the scientific community to overcome the worldwide taxonomic impediment by combining accessible digital keys with training programs, capacity building and reference collections.
