    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 plant genus Trichilia (Meliaceae) as occurring in continental Africa was revised taxonomically. Eighteen species were distinguished. Each species was illustrated with a detailed drawing and distribution maps were given of each species in Africa.

Botanical descriptions were made and supplemented with ecological and biological data, historical information and miscellaneous notes relevant to botanical research in its widest sense.

The flowers in Trichilia were found to be most probably unisexual. Some problems of plant geography were indicated and some were solved. Amendments were made in the taxonomy of this very large, pantropical genus.

Trichilia was shown to be of some importance because of its wood and because of its occurrence as a wide spread component of tropical high forest.

The work was based on field observations, the study of herbarium material and on literature. The revision filled a long-standing gap in information on Trichilia.
