An English-Spanish Glossary of Terminology used in Forestry, Range, Wildlife, Fishery, Soils, and Botany

"The English-Spanish/Spanish-English equivalent translations of scientific and management terms (jargon) commonly used in the field of natural resource management are presented. The glossary is useful in improving communications and fostering understanding between Spanish- and English-speaking persons."

FAO TERM PORTAL

"The TERM PORTAL has been created to store, manage and update concepts, terms and definitions related to the various fields of FAO’s activity. The idea is to offer a single search window for all glossaries, in one or several languages, as a mechanism to enhance the exchange of information and facilitate communication."

Global Agricultural Concept Scheme

"GACS explored the possibility of creating a global repository of concepts and terminology in the area of agriculture. This first beta is the result of the first experimental attempt, and it went very well! We now have a pool of concepts based on a mapping between AGROVOC, the CAB Thesaurus and the NAL Thesaurus. An analysis of the the coverage of GACS beta with respect to AGROVOC showed that it could already be used to index AGRIS, with no significant loss of indexing concepts."

FAO Glossary of Biotechnology for Food and Agriculture

"The 'Glossary of Biotechnology for Food and Agriculture' is a revised, augmented version of the 'Glossary of Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering' published by FAO in 1999. The idea for such a collection of terminology associated with the rapidly expanding fields related to or deriving from biotechnology and genetic engineering, was stimulated by the difficulty of communicating effectively in discussions at intergovernmental level. On various occasions, simple differences of interpretation of terminology have threatened to de-rail negotiations of international importance.

Viikin kampuskirjaston ontologia

"Maa- ja metsätalousalojen AFO-ontologia (n. 6 000 käsitettä) perustuu Agriforest-asiasanastoon, jota ylläpitää Helsingin yliopistoon kuuluva Viikin kampuskirjasto. Viikin tiedekirjasto on rakentanut yhteistyössä Semanttisen laskennan tutkimusryhmän kanssa Agriforest-ontologiasta ja Yleisestä suomalaisesta ontologiasta (YSO) koostuvan yhdistelmäontologian FinnONTO-projektissa.

AGRIS/CARIS Categorization Scheme

"The scope of AGRIS and CARIS coincides with the scope of FAO and covers agriculture and its related fields, including fisheries, forestry, food, veterinary science and rural development. The AGRIS/CARIS Categorization Scheme is the basic manual for the categorization of agricultural literature and agricultural research projects to be included respectively in AGRIS and CARIS, and gives a breakdown of the AGRIS/CARIS subject scope into a number of main fields which are further subdivided into specific subject categories. Each subject category is represented by a code."
