    Union Catalogue of Agricultural Libraries in the Netherlands

    The WUR Library Catalogue contains bibliographic data on books and periodicals held by the libraries of Wageningen University and Research Centre and some 15 associated libraries. Holding data are added to each record.

    Subjects covered include Agrotechnology, Food and Food Production, Plant and Animal Sciences, Soil Science, Geo-information, Landscape and Spatial Planning, Water and Climate, Ecosystem Studies, Economics and Society.

    The joint collections of the participating libraries cover a substantial part of the internationally available scientific literature in these disciplines.

    As far as Dutch scientific literature in these fields is concerned, coverage can be considered near 100%, including much of the so-called "grey literature".

    All titles are entered in their original language. Keywords are added to facilitate subject searching.

    The database is updated every day and now contains over 830.000 records.

An attempt was made to produce a di(ha)ploid tester clone with marker genes in an heterozygous condition for studies on induced mutations in potato ( Solanum tuberosum L.). Literature on potato mutations was reviewed. Formation of adventitious roots and shoots from potato leaves, leaflets and stem parts was studied in vivo. Roots formed easily, but adventitious shoots were very few. Techniques in vitro were more promising. After a review of literature on shoot apices, damage and recovery of irradiated potato shoot apices was studied in whole plants as well as from changes in tuber-skin colour caused by histogenic effects and from microscopic slides made during a 20-day period after irradiation.
