Appendix A Selected Readings An excellent bibliography of amaranth literature has been collected and compiled by the Rodale Research Center. (Senft, J. P., C. S. Kauffman, and N. N. Bailey. 1981. The Genus Amaranthus: A Comprehensive Bibliography. Rodale Press, Inc., Emmaus, Pennsyl- vania, USA. 217 pp.) A most useful publication for libraries and for those interested in amaranth research, it contains more than 2,600 entries and references organized according to the following subjects: general; genetics/taxonomy; weeds; horticulture/agronomy; plant phys- iology; plant pathology/entomology; anthropology; and nutritional/ food utilization. An amaranth newsletter is being published to help readers keep current with the latest research developments. It includes abstracts of amaranth publications.
