Introduction

This bibliography was prepared to accompany a panel presentation made at the National SARE Conference, Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, August 17, 2006.

Supporting publications:

The publications cited here were retrieved using a diverse database set; documents were selected for their conservation- and environment-related content based on terms appearing in the publication titles and in author or database abstracts and keywords. All cited documents are in English. The brief annotations describing conservation category, notable content and production system were defined and assigned by the compiler.

Annotations relate to three types of content:

Conservation category: [air, biodiversity, carbon sequestration, energy, general conservation and/or soil, water]

Production system(s): [general crop production, general-multiple production, grain and field crop production, horticulture production, livestock production, pasture and forage crop production and/or tree and orchard production]

Notable content: [terms vary, relating to specific practices and methodologies that organic researchers often ask about]

An index of these terms and corresponding citation numbers is included at the end of the bibliography. This index includes the total number of citations for each topic (number appearing in parentheses).

Many organic research publications not included in this bibliography reflect significant information about environmental and conservation issues. For instance, there was not an effort to search specifically on biological control or on cover cropping – both practices with recognized conservation and environmental impacts.

Odum as a means of making it distinct from other embodied energy methodologies. In this context, ‘emergy’ is a contraction of the term ‘embodied energy’. However Scienceman also used emergy to refer to the concept of energy memory, and H.T.Odum used it to mean both sequestered energy and emergent property of energy use...” From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, 7/19/06.
