Excerpt from An Annotated Bibliography on Seed Storage and Deterioration: A Review of 20th Century Literature Reported in Foreign Languages
Limited knowledge in regard to foreign publications led to the procurement and translation of several papers that are popular in nature or do not contain results of original experimental work. In order to assist the user of this bibliography in selecting original articles for further perusal, popular-type articles that are included are specified.
On several occasions it was found that certain authors published essentially the same experimental work in two languages. In these cases, an abstract of only one of the articles is given and attention is directed to other articles in which the same report appears.
Where abstracting publications have sufficed to provide the pertinent information of an article, they have been freely used as sources for the annotations. The source of information is identified, when applicable, either as from an abstract or from the English summary (or other summary of different language than the article proper). If the source is not specified.
