Glossary of root, tuber and banana seed systems 


A glossary is especially important for a topic like seed systems, which brings together experts from many different fields of biology, agronomy and social science. This detailed glossary is based on a literature review of peer-reviewed publications, citing the texts and providing the references, so that readers can get a quick overview of the technical language of seed systems, while also being able to consult the original literature for a broader context.

Examples of questions that the tool can address
  • What is the difference between “quality” seed and “quality declared seed?”
  • I need to start a literature review (for my thesis, for a course I am teaching, for a paper I am writing), where can I find some solid references to get started?
