An excellent gateway to all current research on seed science
Seed Abstracts, updated weekly online, it is also available in print, delivered monthly.
Seed Abstracts is a fully searachable abstracts database of internationally published research. Seed Abstracts brings you the latest information on seed science, covering all aspects of research on both wild and cultivated plants.
Derived from CAB Abstracts, the applied life sciences database, coverage includes seed physiology, seed germination and dormancy, embryology and seed development, seed technology, seed production, seed composition, seed ecology and the seed industry.
Each week Seed Abstracts delivers all the new highly-targeted, searchable summaries covering key English and non-English language journal articles, reports, conferences and books about Seeds. Over 7,500 records are added to the database each year.
Seed Abstracts includes a fully searchable backfile to 1976. Over 146,000 research summaries (click here for a sample record) bring a wealth of current and seminal research in seeds to your fingertips!
Seed Abstracts, updated weekly online, is also available in print, delivered monthly.
Covers the seed trade including national and international regulations, seed marketing, economic aspects of seed production, and the private and public sector seed industries.
