The initial information was taken from two FAO publications "Tropical Grasses" (1990) by Skerman, P.J. and F.Riveros and "Tropical Forage Legumes"(1988) by Skerman, P.J., Cameron, D.G. and F. Riveros.

More recent material includes many species from temperate areas, from the Sahel and other agro-ecological zones. Except for the initial material the sources of the new species descriptions and photographs are clearly indicated by author and organization.

Each species description has a bibliography, in some cases the references are linked to Ecoport.
