Electronic Data Information Source
The EDIS website is your Every Day Information Source. It is a comprehensive, single-source repository of all current UF/IFAS numbered peer-reviewed publications.
UF/IFAS academic departments develop and maintain a collection of publications available for universal free distribution on the web and through UF/IFAS Extension County Offices and Research and Education Centers statewide. Each year, visitors to the EDIS website access one of over 7,000 publication titles more than 26 million times. A streamlined publication process, universal web access, and print as needed services not only reduce the cost but also expand the impact of UF/IFAS publications.
UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education
The UF/IFAS Center for Public Issues Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources (or "PIE Center") examines how people think about, form, and act on opinions regarding complex agricultural and natural resources issues. The PIE Center's research and educational programs help enable the public and policymakers to make informed decisions about Florida's agriculture and natural resources sectors.
