This collection contains information about the organization and methodology behind the Cereal Leaf Beetle Project. The Western Cereal Leaf Beetle (CLB) Team was formed in 1999 following the detection of the cereal leaf beetle, Oulema melanopus (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) in Oregon and Washington State (Roberts & Rao, 2012). The team grew to include 37 scientists from seven western states and two Canadian Provinces. Led by a Washington State University (WSU) Extension field faculty member, the team adopted a classic integrated pest management (IPM) model to conduct regulatory, research, and control activities on the pest. See Multi-Agency Team Uses University Archival Tool to Conserve Vital Project Information for more information.
