SB 979.5 Inspection. Quarantine. Periodicals, Societies, Serials
APHIS publications, a division of the USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, developed this site as a directory to list "... all the publications currently available from the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS)--the agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) charged with protecting American agriculture from foreign pests and diseases. Our publications include factsheets and brochures for consumers, farmers, scientists, journalists, and others. Some of these documents are offered in Spanish as well as in English."
A site directory is divided into three sections. The first provides an alphabetical list of all APHIS publications and defines the type of each document. The second section organizes these same sources by their respective APHIS program area. In this area, electronic links are provided for access to the APHIS Gopher, enabling the user to download reports. For those reports not electronically linked, instructions are given for receiving the texts by mail.
In the directory's third section, the user will find "...APHIS technical reports on animal health/management prepared by the APHIS Veterinary Services Centers for Epidemiology and Animal Health at Fort Collins, CO." Instructions are given for receiving these reports. Regardless of the user's choice among the three sections, all entries contain: the title of the document, its publication type, a description of content, and the publishing date.
This site is maintained by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Immediate access to any of the three directory sections through the initial site page. Follow instructions within the section to view an individual entry.
