Indian Forestry Abstracts
Indian Forestry Abstracts (IFA) is a new venture of KFRI to present a comprehensive bibliography of current forestry literature published in India, along with an abstract for each citation. No such abstracting service exists for Indian forestry literature, although International ones like Commonwealth Agricultural Bureau Information system (CABI), AGRIS (FAO) and AGRICOLA (USDA) are widely consulted. With due respect to the international abstracting services, it must be noted that they do not adequately cover Indian forestry literature. Nearly 60% of Indian forestry research is unnoticed and hence lost from world forestry research. The purpose of IFA is to ensure that Indian publications get their due attention from the national and international academic community. A large country like India, with its unique forest types and practices need a country specific listing of research publications to make them more inclusive of Indian forestry, Indian institutions and independent researchers working in India. IFA is an endeavour to reach Indian forestry research to a wider national and international audience. Printed version of IFA can be had from Librarian, Kerala Forest Research Institute (KFRI), Peechi, 680 653, Thrissur, Kerala.
Kerala Forest Research Institute
Kerala Forest Research Institute (KFRI) is a multidisciplinary team of experts conducting research on tropical forests and forestry. This Institute has contributed significantly to research in tropical forestry and biodiversity conservation over the past three decades of its existence. Founded in 1975, Institute is envisioned as a Centre of Excellence in Tropical Forestry to provide scientific support for decision making on matters related to forestry, with particular emphasis on conservation, sustainable utilization and scientific management of natural resources. KFRI became a part of the Kerala State Council for Science, Technology and Environment (KSCSTE) along with five other R&D Centres of the State, when the KSCSTE was constituted in 2002.
