||The impetus for this bibliography came as a guide to the Steering Committee of the Maize and Wheat Improvement Research Network for SADC (MWIRNET) to the published wheat research conducted in southern Africa. This type of information was initially critical to allow objective consideration of the relevance ofresearch proposals submitted to MWIRNET for funding support. It is hoped that this bibliography will now serve a broader audience of administrators, researchers, extension specialists and farmers by giving them increased access to the large pool of information concerning wheat in southern Africa. The bibliography lists citations of publications printed primarily in English. It is arranged in three sections; a country-topic index, and alphabetic author lists of literature-at-Iarge, and research whose conduct or publication was supported by CIMMYT. The bibliography was compiled from various electronic and printed sources. and by scouring annual reports and workshop proceedings. Problems associated with assembling lists of this sort include the necessary abridgment of the corpus literature, the necessity to set a publication deadline thus resulting in failure to include contemporary citations, and duplications. omissions, typographical and citation errors, and arbitrary indexing procedures. Inaccuracy in the reporting of these citations is sincerely regretted.
