Level of confidence in the essential data

  • When providing advice to the NBMG, the NBMCC will need to advise on the level of confidence it has in the information that underpins the climate suitability map for the pest or disease species.

  • The most accurate data available should be used.

  • The best sources of data are:

    1. published, peer-reviewed data

    2. museum/herbarium/collection records and

    3. expert advice, properly elicited.

    4. Other sources of data that may be available are:

    5. Free databases (such as ECO, GBIF, PaDIL) and

    6. Internet sources, where the level of confidence is ranked` (highest to lowest):

      1. validated data sources with open access

      2. validated data sources without open access

      3. survey data and

      4. open access (e.g. a google search).

  • Where data are not validated, these sources should be checked and validated where possible. The data sources listed in item (vi)(g)(iv) of this attachment should be assessed according to their confidence ratings (see table in item (vi)(k) of this attachment). Assessments of survey data should consider the methodology used. If the methodology is not available, a low confidence rating should be assigned to these data. Surveys that follow international standards, such as those outlined in ISPM-6 (for plant pests and diseases) or OIE reporting standards (for animal Pests and diseases) should be assigned a higher confidence rating.

  • Surrogate species (closely related species) information should not be used as there is no direct correlation between surrogates and the actual pest/disease species.

  • Formal and informal networks of experts are an essential source of information and data. These networks should be encouraged and communicated to ensure timely and effective decision-making.

  • A table outlining the confidence rating of different data sources is provided below.

    Document Type or Information Source

    Confidence Rating

    • Peer-reviewed scientific paper

    High

    • High quality science or plant specific books (e.g. floras), non-peer reviewed scientific paper (e.g. conference proceedings),

    • Personal communications from experts
      (e.g. PhD, or higher degree on species being assessed),

    • Unpublished reports from highly reliable sources
      (e.g. commercial reports or honours theses, etc.),

    • Internet information from Herbaria data, or

    • Internet information that cites sources from the ‘Medium/High’ category above.

    Medium/High

    • Personal communications from people with experience with the species under assessment,

    • Information from general plant books
      (e.g. Encyclopaedia Botanica, Gardening Flora, etc.),

    • Unpublished reports from uncertain sources,

    • Internet information that cites sources from the ‘Medium’ category, or

    • Internet information from government or university websites (e.g. Australian state governments, or the USDA)

    Medium

    1. Anecdotal data from non-experts,

    2. Internet information that cites anecdotal, non-expert sources,

    3. Internet information from uncertain/uncited sources,

    4. Horticultural, nursery notes or general web pages.

    Medium/Low

    • No data or reference material available.
