Agricultural geography is defined as the study of the geographical and locational attributes, patterns, and processes of crop and animal farming, and related subjects such as farm land, farm-associated human geographers, environmental issues, and theoretical works on the location of agricultural activities.
The study of agricultural geography has produced a large amount of literature.
This volume records and presents, in an organized manner, as much as possible of this literature.
The entries of this compendium are written in a wide array of languages, including English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Russian and others in order to provide the widest coverage possible.
The entries include atlases, books, book chapters, scholarly articles from professional journals, conference proceedings, doctoral dissertations, and master's theses.
Over 12,000 entries have been recorded here, with the hope that such references will encourage and support the work of students, faculty, and other users.
