CABI’s Knowledge Business

CABI produces key scientific publications, including CAB Abstracts – the world-leading abstracting and indexing   database   covering   applied   life   sciences.   We   also   publish    multimedia  compendia, books, eBooks and full text electronic resources aiming to further science and its application to real life.

International Development projects and research

Through knowledge sharing and science, CABI helps address issues of global concern such as improving global food security and safeguarding the environment. We do this by helping farmers grow  more and lose less of what they produce, combating threats to agriculture and the environment from  pests and diseases, protecting biodiversity from invasive species, and improving access to agricultural and environmental scientific knowledge.
