    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.

The genus Populus L. can be divided into 5 sections. This study deals with the classification and description of the species and varieties of the section Aigeiros Duby (black poplars), which contains almost all the important cultivated types in the Netherlands. The botanical information was supplemented by information on origin, distribution, possible origin from crosses, their Latin and popular names, and their cross fertility. Some data were given on the wood and its use, periods of flowering, budding and leaf fall and description of leaf prints. The data were compiled into a determinative key, a botanical and a geographical classification of the genus Populus L. and a table contrasting the features of important species of the section Aigeiros.

The culture of the poplar could be of greater value to the low-lying Netherlands. Wood production per tree could be much enlarged. Confused nomenclature often led to introduction of susceptible types. A plea was made for international control.
