    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.

Graft combinations were made between flowering (donor) and non-flowering (receptor) plants, and grown in a photoperiod unfavourable for flowering of the receptor.

Donor leaves of the short-day (SD) plant Perilla crispa caused a maximum flowering response after exposure to 30 SD. By the use of radioactive sucrose it was shown that a functional phloem connection between donor and receptor was necessary for transmission of the floral stimulus. Induced Perilla leaves transferred to LD had not lost their capacity to induce flower formation after 3 months. But leaves taken from flowering receptor branches did not function as donors. Thus, photoperiodic induction of Perilla was permanently conserved in the SD-treated leaves. This was in contrast to Xanthium (SD plant) in which indirectly induced shoots could themselves transfer the floral stimulus to receptors.

Transmission of the floral stimulus was also demonstrated between: Kalanchoë (SD plant) and Sedum (LD plant), and between Maryland Mammoth tobacco (SD plant) and Nicotiana sylvestris (LD plant). In either case, the LD plant as well as the SD plant could function as donor for the other partner. A day-neutral tobacco variety did not cause flower formation in Maryland Mammoth tobacco, but when grafted as interstock between N. sylvestris and Maryland Mammoth tobacco it permitted transfer of the flowering stimulus. It was concluded that in graft-compatible species the floral stimuli of SD and LD plants seemed to be identical.
