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 described his search for the most profitable way of bringing into culture 5000 ha in Andalusia, west-south-west of Seville, on an extensive sand plateau probably of diluvial origin. By appraisal of the trees and crops already thriving in Andalusia, he settled for Eucalyptus globulus, taking into account that there would be a ready demand for young heart-free wood for the paper industry.The most profitable exploitation was as coppice on a rotation of 8-10 years. There was also possible scope as timber for Spain and other countries. The manufacture of wood waste to charcoal also needed study. Other possible outlets were as tar products and leaf oil.E. globulus could also be grown profitably and without risks in other regions of Spain, in other Mediterranean countries and in other continents where there was sufficient water and a rather loose soil and there was sufficient cheap labour.
