FAQS

What thesaurus does AANRO use for indexing?

AANRO used the CAB Thesaurus published by CAB International. This thesaurus is also used to index bibliographic records for CAB Abstracts and Agricola databases. It is the world’s largest English language thesaurus for agriculture.

We have adapted the thesaurus to suit Australian terminology. For example, we have abandoned the CAB term – Watersheds in favour of the index terms Catchments, Catchment Management etc.
