    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 author tried to confirm the results of Mez et al., who, assuming specific antigens for each plant species, tried to set up a botanical taxonomy by serological differentiation of plant proteins.

The filtrate, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 ml, of an extract of ground seeds of a plant species was always injected into one of the ear veins of a rabbit 6 times every 5 days. After the 6th injection with this antigen solution a blood sample was taken and centrifuged after congealing. The serum was pipetted, the complement made inactive by heating and the titre of the serum estimated (in dilution degree of the seed extract for minimum precipitation). If the titre was not yet sufficient, more was injected. When sufficient, all the blood was taken from the rabbit and serum was separated. For various plants it was then checked whether a protein solution of their seeds or green parts reacted with this anti serum. The precipitation method as well as the conglutination method was used.

For great groups of plants closer relationships could be established with good certitude (confirming results of Mez). But classification of genera and species should be cautious (contrast Mez), as unspecific reactions often occur.
