The first international "Fascination of Plants Day" (May 18th 2012) will be launched under the umbrella of the European Plant Science Organisation. The goal of this activity is to get as many people as possible around the world fascinated by plants and enthused about the importance of plant science. vifabio is supporting this campaign by collecting the most important internet sources together for you.
You will find more biological web resources in our Internet Guide - a catalogue of annotated and evaluated internet sites.
The database contains fully referenced, detailed information on how Māori used plants to survive in New Zealand, particularly before the arrival of Europeans. Material relating to later economic uses of native plants is recorded too, though generally not on timber uses and the kauri gum trade. Fungi and seaweeds are included, and there are references to some Pacific plants, such as Pandanus, that have links to Māori culture. Also included are pertinent references on traditional resource rights and intellectual property claims relating to plant uses by indigenous peoples. The information is taken from the written record, mostly published (books, articles, newspapers) and some unpublished (such as manuscripts and letters). Sources are noted for each item. Information is generally recorded as written in the source material, without interpretation. Editorial comment is sometimes made for clarification. ... [Information of the supplier]
The IRRI Library is responsible for maintaining the Rice Bibliography. Whereas the library catalogue contains a large collection of books and journals of interest to scientists researching rice or rice-related topics, the Rice Bibliography is a comprehensive bibliography of all books and articles directly pertaining to rice. It endeavours to include all articles and books relating to rice in the world, and is the world's largest and most complete source of scientific information about rice with almost 8,000 new references added each year. All articles pertaining to rice are sought out for the Rice Bibliography and IRRI Library acquires copies of the article whether or not it holds the particular serial in its collection. Over the years the Rice Bibliography has been mounted on a total of four software packages. The version on the screen before you contains references from 1970 onwards. Older references, a few going back to the mid-18th century, are available for searching at IRRI Library. ... [Information of the supplier]
