PaDIL helps protect against invasive threats to Australia's economy, environment, human health and amenity.

Australia has a wonderful natural quarantine barrier – it is surrounded by seas and has been isolated from other continents for millions of years.

However, today’s air and ship travel means that Australia is subject to many thousands of potential pests and diseases incursions every day.

Guarding against pest and disease invasion is a key component of Australia's National Plant Health Strategy and the National Prevention and Management of Marine Pest Incursions. Rapid recognition of Regulated and Marine Pests is critical to ensure appropriate response strategies are implemented.

The Pests and Diseases Information Library offers high-quality colour diagnostic images and information on pests and diseases along with a number of comparative native species.
