    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.

A study was made of the N cycle in permanent pastures. Between 10 and 40 % was lost when labelled NO 3 -, was added. The losses by denitrification were stimulated by living roots, which decreased the O 2 level in the rhizosphere and excreted organic compounds which could act as hydrogen donors during NO 3 - reduction. Experiments with sterile plants demonstrated that Pseudomonas and Achromobacter species could use the root's excretory products as hydrogen donors. Bacillus licheniformis and some other B.spp., which could denitrify in pure culture, could not utilize these compounds. Amino acids stimulated denitrification by Pseudomonas aeruginosa and the rate-limiting reduction from nitrate to nitrite.

B. licheniformis was not an obligate denitrifier; the presence of NO 3 - was only indispensable and a high nitrate reductase activity was only found if glycerol was the hydrogen donor.

Conditions in the soil were not suitable for NO 3 - reduction to NH by B. licheniformis.
