Bio-Dynamics Journal

The Bio-Dynamics Association (USA) collaborated with the Soil And Health Library to offer a complete series of BioDynamics Journal including all 260 issues from 1941 to 2007. Please note that many of the issues prior to 1950 were scanned from faded photocopies of the originals. The quality of these early items is not the best.

A searchable html index of issues from 1941 – 1975 is here. Searchable text, indexed by both Author and Title. Supplied by the BDFGA USA.

The same file as a pdf is here.

A non-searchable index is here. Marshall, Anne E. Index to Bio-Dynamics 1941-1975: Title —Author — Subject; A Guide to 4000 Pages of Bio-dynamic Information. No date; Bio-Dynamic Farming and Gardening Association, Inc., Springfield, Illinois. No notice of copyright.
