I’ve updated a couple of important resources.
First, you can download a copy of “The ecological benefits of shade-grown coffee: the case for going Bird-Friendly,” a report by Robert Rice of the Smithsonian Migratory Bird Center issued in September. It reviews more than 50 mostly peer-reviewed studies performed on shade coffee farms, and summarizes the findings and benefits of this mode of coffee production. It is in Word format, and the link can also be found in the “Related links” section of the left sidebar under “Eco-benefits of shade coffee: scientific case studies.”
I’ve also updated my bibliography of peer-reviewed research on relevant coffee issues, which can be accessed through the “References” tab at the top of the page.
