We are beyond excited to share developmental stage photos of the Japanese beetle (Popillia japonica) directly from our laboratory experiment.  The Japanese beetle undergoes three larval stages, which means that the larvae do not grow steadily&nb...

#IPMPopillia
From October 18–20, 2023, members of the IPM Popillia consortium came together in Heraklion, Greece, for the yearly General Assembly of the IPM Popillia project. The event provided the possibility of gaining insight into and learning about the progre...

Interactive map of Europe's suitability for the Japanese beetle

Here is an interactive map showing the suitability of Europe for the Japanese beetle (Popillia japonica). 

This map is the result of our INRAE team's modelling efforts and shows predictions of environmental suitability. You can read more about this work in our previous blog post and in our recent publication (Borner et al., 2023).

The map can be viewed directly below.

All figures and maps, as well as the data and script (written in the R programming environment) are freely available here: https://doi.org/10.57745/GM2YVL.

Clicking on the button below will take you to the page where you can access the interactive map showing the suitability of Europe for the Japanese beetle in full screen.


In addition to the suitability map, our dataset also includes files used in our modelling approach, such as:

  • a raster file of the distribution of Popillia japonica occurrences, collected using citizen science platforms and standardised surveys,
  • a raster file of the distribution of Coleoptera species collected through citizen science and used as pseudo-absences in the models,
  • a raster stack of predictors used in modelling (climate, human-related variables, land use, soil properties, etc.).
The extent of the raster files is global, the spatial resolution of the raster files is 4 km x 4 km.
