GlobalHort provides focused searching for horticulture

Ever google “onions” to get information on what varieties to plant or the crop’s nutritional composition or how to grow it and get bombarded with nothing but recipes for the first n pages? No, neither have I, but one of the things I learned at yesterday’s GlobalHort meeting on DOCNet here in Rome is that they have a nifty function on their website which limits searching to a number of technical websites, thus minimizing this problem. What it doesn’t do, alas, is return the results from searches of different online species databases, as we’ve seen in these case of the taxonomic information aggregator we discussed recently. I also learned that the GlobalHort website, for all its searching sophistication, lacks an RSS feed.
