This reference provides the groundwork, tools, and terminology required when conducting specialized searches for information and resources pertaining to traditional and emerging fields of agriculture such as food and nutrition, rural development, farming, conservation management, veterinary science, soils, genetic engineering, biological control, and the environment. The book includes coverage of a wide range of print and electronic media to locate hard-to-find documents, navigate poorly indexed subjects, and investigate specific research topics and subcategories. Each contribution addresses research in a particular sub-field of the general discipline of agricultural sciences.
