SilvaTerm Database / SilvaVoc Terminology Project / Special Programmes and Projects. Is the terminological database for forestry that is being built by SilvaVoc, IUFRO‘s project on forest terminology.
Terminology being living expert knowledge, this is not a static database, but a continuing process of change and revision. At present, the database is based mainly on terms and equivalent terms of a trilingual forestry vocabulary produced by T.B. Yerke, USA. This basic stock of terms is regularly improved with definitions and additional terms by the IUFRO Units in the following languages: Online-Verwaltungslexikon - Definitionen und Materialien. Google Übersetzer. Fremdwörterbuch Online-Edition. AGROVOC :: Agricultural Information Management Standards (AIMS) | Interoperability, reusability and cooperation.
AGROVOC is a controlled vocabulary covering all areas of interest of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations, including food, nutrition, agriculture, fisheries, forestry, environment etc.
It is published by FAO and edited by a community of experts. AGROVOC consists of over 32,000 concepts available in up to 20 languages: Arabic, Chinese, Czech, English, French, German, Hindi, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Lao, Persian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Slovak, Spanish, Thai, Turkish. AGROVOC is used by researchers, librarians and information managers for indexing, retrieving and organizing data in agricultural information systems and web pages. Currently, AGROVOC is an SKOS-XL concept scheme, a Linked Open Data set aligned with 13 other multilingual knowledge organization systems related to agriculture.
