    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.

On the eastern slopes of the Cameroon Mountains soils occurring below the 100- metre contour were surveyed on a scale 1:25,000. Most soils are young marine clay soils used for growing bananas, oilpalms, cocoa, rubber and tea. At some places there are lava streams from the mountains.

A more general soil survey was made of the younger and older volcanic soils above the 100-metre contour line and a map, scale 1 : 100,000, was produced.

The relative age of the various volcanic deposits could be estimated after completing the study of the origin, genesis and distribution of marine soils, that cover volcanic deposits in the lower part of the plain.

The discovery of beach walls at different levels formed as a result of differences in sea-levels and gradual rise of the land, helped to solve various soil problems. Most soils are K-deficient, especially young volcanic soils.
