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.
Two series of experiments with, respectively, 72(32♂ and 40♀) and 36 (all♀) spotted rats examined the influence of UV radiation and vitamin D on Ca and P metabolism. The experiments started at weaning of the rats (21-28 days) and lasted for 7 weeks in the first and for 5 weeks in the second series. Rations were used with Ca:P ratios varying between 1:045 and 1:2.8. Growth curves, skeletal X-ray photographs and Ca and P balances were studied.Ca: P ratios between 1: 0.96 and 1: 1.27 proved optimum. Net absorption and retention of these minerals was maximum at that ratio. The rations with extreme Ca: P ratios induced rachitis that healed with both treatments. It was in these rations that net absorption of Ca reacted most sensitively to vitamin D or UV treatment. At all Ca: P ratios some reaction was observed with vitamin D and with UV-treatment. Excess of one of the two minerals inhibited the retention of the other. Inhibition by Ca was more potent than by P.
