Apiculture, which is not harmful to the environment and which leads to improved crop pollination and fruit production, is seen as having potential in areas threatened by drought and erosion, especially when combined with agroforestry farming systems in A rice. Grasping this potential, the International Bee Research Association (IBRA) has made a survey of world honey sources and has published a 'Directory of Important World Honey Sources'. The directory includes hundreds of plants, many of them multipurpose trees capable of producing timber, animal fodder, fruit, or other products. The directory is stored on a computerized database and programme searches can be made for multi-purpose species on the basis of such economic uses as fuel, timber, hedging, afforestation, amenity planting, soil benefit, erosion control, and soil enrichment.
