New in HOORC's Library: Vegetable oils of tropical Africa
Vegetable oils of tropical Africa : conclusions and recommendations based on PROTA 14 : vegetable oils, produced by the Plant Resources of Tropical Africa (PROTA) Programme, is a summary of knowledge consolidated through the PROTA programme's review of nearly 250 African plant species known to yield vegetable oil. Aimed at rural development agencies, vocational training centres, entrepreneurs, researchers, students and policy makers, the report provides tables that describe the most promising plants and extraction technologies, development and research gaps (including possible thesis topics), conservation needs and related policy issues. You can find the report, and more PROTA publications, in HOORC's Library.
