File Description [top]

CAB ABSTRACTS is a comprehensive file of applied life science information containing all records in the 44 abstract journals published by CAB International (CABI), plus many more records which appear online only.

CABI has long been recognized as a leading scientific information service in agriculture and related sciences. Of particular note are sections in the database comprehensively covering literature in the fields of veterinary medicine, human nutrition, horticulture, forestry, leisure, recreation, and tourism.

More than 9,000 serial journals in more than 50 languages are scanned, as well as books, reports, and other publications. About 225,000 items per year are selected for inclusion in CAB Abstracts. Roughly 95 percent of the literature is abstracted, while less important works are reported with bibliographic details only. An online thesaurus is available as an aid in locating broader, narrower, and related subject terms. File 250, ONTAP CAB ABSTRACTS, is available for ONline Training And Practice; it contains approximately 38,000 CAB ABSTRACTS records from early 1993.

  /AB     The  aim  of  this  paper  is  to evaluate two agroindustrial productive 
     processes  in  their  entirety  (one  organic  and  one  semi-industrial), 
     focusing  on the comparison of impacts derived from the inputs and outputs 
     of  the  system  (life  cycle assessment, LCA), integrated with a physical 
     evaluation  of  the  resources  and  natural  services,  on a common basis 
     (emergy).  Methods based on the joint use of LCA and emergy evaluation are 
     useful,  as  they  measure  the contribution of environmental services and 
     products  to  the  productive  process  thus  focusing  primarily  on  the 
     environmental  impact  of  emissions  and non-renewable energy inputs. The 
     complementarity  of  the  methods used in this paper contributes important 
     elements  and information useful for the comprehension of the organization 
     of  agriculture  within  Siena's  territory.  The  results  show important 
     elements  and  useful  information:  (1)  for the comprehension of the two 
     agroecosystems'  organization;  (2)  for  the use of the energy flows that 
     determine  their development. Moreover, the combined use of emergy and LCA 
     gives  a  comparative thermodynamic performance evaluation between organic 
     and semi-industrial farming.
