International Organization of Citrus Virologists Proceedings, 16th Conference, Pgs. 473-476. Interpretive Summary: The EcoPort website is a site where knowledge of biodiversity is shared for education and not-for-profit uses, yet the contributor retains ownership of the information. The types of information on citrus topics is described, and instructions are given for obtaining information.
Technical Abstract: The EcoPort website was launched in 2000 to provide a knowledge database of biodiversity. As of September 2005, the EcoPort website contained over one half million references, over 42,000 pictures and over 200 slide shows, of which 59 pertain to citrus and citrus virus and virus-like diseases. As well as English, 10 slide shows on citrus diseases are currently in French, Spanish or Portuguese. All slide shows and pictures (in JPEG and GIF format) are accessible online and can be downloaded. Texts are continually updated with the latest information and research and can be edited online. Imputs from researchers are welcome and appreciated.
