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.
Rats on a diet of rolled oats 400, purified casein. 16 and cod liver oil 2 g developed severe sodium deficiency. Na in the basal ration was 0.009 %. Addition of different sodium salts caused immediate recovery. The deficiency was difficult to produce because of uncontrolled sodium uptake by the craving animals. Symptoms included increased activity, depression of growth and finally even weight loss, decreased fur growth, thinning and ulceration of bald spots left and right of the spine and just behind the head, excessive licking and dehydration.With sodium citrate added to the basal ration there was a positive correlation between amount of sodium and rate of resumed growth. Optimum growth was achieved with 0. 1 - 0.2 % added Na. Na could not be replaced by K or Li. K did not possess the Na-expelling effect postulated by Bunge because Na requirement was independent of K in feed and because a fixed addition of Na gave a reproducible growth in depleted rats, however much K in diet. N excretion during deficiency mainly as urea, was excessive, and it seemed that Na was needed for protein synthesis. Conception was normal but reproduction was impossible. Weight gain during pregnancy was much reduced and no milk was secreted. After severe Na deficiency kidneys could not conserve sodium until an ample supply had been available for a short while. Body temperature was normal during deficiency but was rather high some time after resupplying sodium.
