From the ecological point of view Juniperus is notably as an extremely important genus in many parts of the world. Unfortunately seed propagation, the best way to defend biodiversity, is quite hard for many species because the seeds exhibit different kinds of dormancy which can strongly vary even within the same species. Germination and, in general, propagation in Juniperus species is a quite complex issue about which little is known.
The work done within the ISTA FTS Committee aimed at collecting information, mainly through abstracts from papers published from 1893 to 2006. Information includes propagation in Juniperus species and related topics like seed dispersal, seed collection, dormancy, dormancy removal, nursery growing, etc. Citations on fire and management may be included for some species.
To propagate the species successfully it is important that people have information to aid them in nursery practices. The purpose of the project was to provide an up-to-date bibliography of Juniperus seed research for people working in underdeveloped and developed nations. It was arranged trying to make consultation easy, on the internet or through basic word processing software.
Beti Piotto received valuable assistance from colleagues to search several databases for journal articles on Juniperus propagation. USDA Forest Service National Seed Laboratory purchased Procite software and Jill Barbour typed or copied the abstracts into Procite Software.
Most Juniperus species have been included. The bibliography contains 1010 citations; abstracts are in English even though a single article may be written in a different original language. The most recent articles (after 2006) will be added to the bibliography as an update in the near future.
Several bibliography formats were created from Procite. Each format was saved as .rtf (rich text format) file and then converted to .pdf (portable document format) file for the internet. The bibliographies can be searched through .pdf software or word processing software.
Three files are available because the 1010 citations were arranged in three ways:
§ Workform (.pdf);
§ Subject by date (.pdf);
§ Subject by keywords (.pdf)
The workform format is the only bibliography that lists the author's location at the time the article was written.
Bibliography by workform (.pdf)
This bibliography is alphabetically arranged by author's last name with a record number. Each citation is arranged in outline form with record number, author name, article title, journal title, date, volume, issue, pages, address, ISSN, Notes, abstract, call number, keywords.
Bibliography by subject by date (.pdf)
This bibliography organizes the articles by year in descending order from 2006 to 1893. The number of articles are included in parentheses next to each date. The authors are alphabetized by last name within each year. The citations are organized by author name, article title, journal title, date, volume, issue, pages, ISSN, keywords, and abstract.
Bibliography by subject by keywords (.pdf)
Keywords are organized by species' scientific name (i.e. Juniperus, Juniperus australis, …., Juniperus wallichiana).. Next to the name in parentheses are the number of articles listed. Under each species the authors' last name are alphabetized. If the author has more than one citation, the citations are organized by the oldest date to the most recent date. Scientific names are in italics. The species' scientific name is always the first word under the keywords section. Each citation is arranged by author, article title, journal title, date, volume, issue, page number, ISSN number is available, keywords, and abstract.
The abstracts have also provided addresses of authors and institutes which have been listed following titles in alphabetical order (see file author's_addresses.doc) in the way shown in the following example:

Such a list of authors could be useful to inform them all about the bibliography prepared within the ISTA FTS Committee.
