Publisher: CAB International
Covering the literature from 1913 to 1972, CAB Abstracts Archive includes over 1,860,000 records on every aspect of agricultural science, veterinary medicine, nutrition and natural resources, created from over 600 printed volumes.
Because of the relevance of yesterday's knowledge to today's issues, CABI recognizes the importance of making this information as accessible as possible.
CAB Abstracts Archive is fully searchable and has been re-indexed with modern terms to allow today's researcher full and immediate access to the research of the past.
The Archive contains seminal research that will help today's researchers:
- Build on earlier scientific work
- Learn from past mistakes
- Learn from past techniques
- Assess long-term trends and changes
- Access valuable research about rare and infrequent events
- Find 'missing' pieces of research
- Gain insights about the past
Much of the research covered in the archive is still relevant today:
climate change / biodiversity / pest control / pollution / animal diseases (such as TB and avian flu) / food production / managing natural resources / plant and animal breeding.
