Contained in these pages are three different resources. The first is an extensive collection of images. It includes images of the biological control agents, leafy spurge, infestation sites, and research and distribution aids. The second resource is a collection of profiles for each of the biological control agents and for leafy spurge. These profiles, in pdf format, contain in-depth scientific, distribution and impact information. And finally, several posters covering different aspects of leafy spurge management are also included.
Note on file size: Pictures are available in two different file sizes. Users needing high quality photographs (such as for posters or publications) will want to download the larger file size pictures (around 300KB). Users who may not need high quality images (such as for websites, PowerPoint presentations, or casual viewing) should view and download the smaller file size pictures (around 12KB). The large files will have much longer download times, depending on your connection. If you will be needing several of the high end pictures you might want to get the CD (see Contact info below).
Note on viewing graphics: You can view the downloaded graphics using any graphics program. However, the easiest way is to download Irfanview. This program, which was included with the CD, allows you to quickly browse, view, and save images.
