EPPO Express PRA for Prosopis juliflora
The results of the PRA show that P. juliflora poses a moderate risk to the endangered area. The EWG consider this the case as, notwithstanding the high score for impact, indisputable in the current area and considered high for the PRA area, the risk of introduction and the potential area for establishment are both perceived as low, leading the EWG to propose an overall phytosanitary risk score of moderate.
In the EPPO region, P. juliflora is recorded as established in Israel, the West bank and Jordan, and two trees planted in Spain in 1988 still survive. In addition, the species is naturalised in a small area in Gran Canaria (Canary Islands). The likelihood of P. juliflora entering the EPPO region is low with a moderate uncertainty. The species is traded from outside the region.
