    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 Baer-Bassit and Alaouite Mountains are in north-west Syria. The Jebel Alaouite is composed of Jurassic and Cretaceous calcareous rocks, running north-south and culminating on 1580 m. The Baer-Bassit is hilly country with green rocks.

The climate is of Mediterranean type. Soil genesis and classification and degradation by the action of man were studied. Nahal. related soil characteristics to the vegetation. The flora already showed its most prominent traits in the Pliocene. The pluvial periods during the Quaternary influenced its distribution; their effect was still visible.

Directions were worked out for the rational management and exploitation of the forests of Pinus brutia Ten., still in good condition, and the re-establishment of remnant forests of Abies cilicica (Ant. et Ky.) and Cedrus libani A. Rich.

The work closed with a synsystematic and synecological study of the most important tree association of Syria, the Pistacieto-Quercetum calliprini. The importance of the progressive and regressive phases of photodynamic successions for the forester was pointed out.
