AACC Approved Methods of Analysis - 11th Edition



Cereals & Grains Association (formerly AACC International, American Association of Cereal Chemists) was founded in 1915 for the purpose of standardizing methods of analysis among cereal laboratories.

Burnley Plant Guide



The Burnley Plant Guide is an indexed, searchable database of plants that has been developed to support the learning of plants by students at the University of Melbourne, particularly those who undertake courses at its Burnley Campus. The database contains information on over 2,700 plant species or cultivars, and more than 7,500 images illustrating plant recognition characters, plant habitat, form, and use in the landscape.
