Grain science professor edits major reference work

By Jon Faubion

Jon Faubion, Singleton professor of grain science, is one of the four editors of the second edition of The Encyclopedia of Food Grains, newly published by Elsevier Press. 

The 1,900-page, 216-chapter, four-volume reference work covers the agronomy, composition, structure/function, chemistry, processing and utilization of the food grains. It represents the culmination of more than three years of effort by the editors Faubion; Colin Wrigley, Australia; Harold Corke, Hong Kong; and Koushik Seetharaman, Minnesota; and the Elsevier editorial staff.

The encyclopedia is available in an online version now and will be released in hard copy at the end of the year.
