    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 book is the first in a series of publications on Ethiopian useful plants. It treats 19 papilionaceous crops, both from a taxonomic and an agricultural standpoint.

Special chapters are dedicated to the physical and biological environment, the agro-ecological regions in which the country can be divided, the agricultural systems, and some taxonomic problems with special reference to 'cultivar' taxonomy.

The extensive botanical description of each taxon is accompanied by a full-page drawing, photographs of the seeds, lists of synonyms, literature and names, and details on taxonomic problems, occurrence, ecology, husbandry, uses and protein content.

Indices on common and scientific plant names are added.
