-- AGRIS is the international information system for the agricultural
sciences and technology. The system identifies literature dealing with
all aspects of agriculture, and covers: plant and animal production
and protection; post harvest processing of primary agricultural products;
forestry; fisheries; agricultural engineering; natural resources and
the environment as related to agriculture; food; human nutrition; agricultural
economics; rural development; and agricultural administration, legislation,
information, education and extension.
and Agricultural Index. Provides access to citations in the
agricultural and biological literature and related subjects such as
ecology, food science, nutrition, and veterinary medicine. Indexes articles,
reports of meetings, review articles, special supplements, and book
reviews dated 1983 to the present.
CAB Abstracts, produced by the
Centre for Agriculture and Biosciences, provides access to citations
and abstracts of the international agricultural literature, including
plant protection, forestry engineering, animal husbandry, animal and
plant breeding, genetics, veterinary medicine, nutrition, rural development,
economics, and leisure and tourism. CAB Abstracts indexes articles,
books conferences, reports and other kinds of literature dated 1972
to the present.
-- CARIS is the Current Agricultural Research Information System, created
by FAO in 1975 to identify and to facilitate the exchange of information
about current agricultural research projects being carried out in, or
on behalf of, developing countries. The System identifies projects dealing
with all aspects of agriculture. The basic unit in CARIS is a set of
data describing a single project, giving such details as the project
title, objectives, inception and termination dates; names of researchers
and their specializations, contact addresses of individuals and institutes
carrying out the research.
Current Research Information System
CRIS is the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's (USDA) documentation and reporting system for ongoing
and recently completed research projects in agriculture, food and nutrition,
and forestry. Projects are conducted or sponsored by USDA research agencies,
state agricultural experiment stations, the state land-grant university
system, other cooperating state institutions, and participants in USDA's
National Research Initiative Competitive Grants Program.
Science and Technology Abstracts -- Provides
access to citations and abstracts dealing with all human food commodities
and food processing (except for the production of raw food). Topics
covered include microbiology, toxicology and hygiene, economics and
statistics, engineering, packaging, and many food products. FSTA indexes
articles, patents, standards, books, conference proceedings, research
reports, dissertations, and legislation dated 1969 to the present.
Resources Abstracts --
The database offers
a comprehensive range of information on water-related research topics.
It includes research reported from government agencies, private contractors,
research centers, and universities found within journal articles, books,
research reports, patents, conference proceedings, and government publications.
Worldwide in scope, it contains over 265,000 citations, most with abstracts,
dated from 1967 to the present, on such aspects as water quality, fish
and aquaculture, conservation, waste, planning, engineering, pollution,
