    Objective The most accurate method to estimate Na and K intakes is to determine 24 h urinary excretions of these minerals. However, collecting 24 h urine is burdensome. Therefore it was studied whether spot urine could be used to replace 24 h urine samples. Design Participants collected 24 h urine and kept one voiding sample separate. Na, K and creatinine concentrations were analysed in both 24 h and spot urine samples. Also 24 h excretions of Na and K were predicted from spot urine concentrations using the Tanaka and Danish methods. Setting In 2011 and 2012, urine samples were collected and brought to the study centre at Wageningen University, the Netherlands. Subjects Women (n 147) aged 19–26 years. Results According to p-aminobenzoic acid excretions, 127 urine collections were complete. Correlations of Na:creatinine, K:creatinine and Na:K between spot urine and 24 h urine were 0·68, 0·57 and 0·64, respectively. Mean 24 h Na excretion predicted with the Tanaka method was higher (difference 21·2 mmol/d, P

    Objective To monitor the effectiveness of salt-reduction initiatives in processed foods and changes in Dutch iodine policy on Na and iodine intakes in Dutch adults between 2006 and 2010. Design Two cross-sectional studies among adults, conducted in 2006 and 2010, using identical protocols. Participants collected single 24 h urine samples and completed two short questionnaires on food consumption and urine collection procedures. Daily intakes of salt, iodine, K and Na:K were estimated, based on the analysis of Na, K and iodine excreted in urine. Setting Doetinchem, the Netherlands. Subjects Men and women aged 19 to 70 years were recruited through random sampling of the Doetinchem population and among participants of the Doetinchem Cohort Study (2006: n 317, mean age 48·9 years, 43 % men; 2010: n 342, mean age 46·2 years, 45 % men). Results While median iodine intake was lower in 2010 (179 µg/d) compared with 2006 (257 µg/d; P <0·0001), no difference in median salt intake was observed (8·7 g/d in 2006 v. 8·5 g/d in 2010, P = 0·70). In 2006, median K intake was 2·6 g/d v. 2·8 g/d in 2010 (P <0·01). In this 4-year period, median Na:K improved from 2·4 in 2006 to 2·2 in 2010 (P <0·001). Conclusions Despite initiatives to lower salt in processed foods, dietary salt intake in this population remains well above the recommended intake of 6 g/d. Iodine intake is still adequate, although a decline was observed between 2006 and 2010. This reduction is probably due to changes in iodine policy.

    Deze tentoonstelling is gemaakt ter gelegenheid van het 750-jarig jubileum van stadsrechten voor Wageningen. Wageningen en haar omgeving kent een unieke historische ontwikkeling van vestingstad tot universiteitsstad. Door de universiteit is Wageningen ook vaak als object van onderzoek en onderwijs gebruikt. Hoe dat alles zijn neerslag heeft gehad is te zien in drie thema’s die vaak met de kleuren blauw, rood en groen worden aangeduid: Wageningen is ontstaan bij een doorwaadbare plek van de Rijn. Het water (blauw) in en rond Wageningen heeft altijd een grote rol gespeeld in de geschiedenis van de stad. De nederzetting groeit uit van een vestingstad met bebouwing (rood) tot een universiteitsstad waar geleefd en gewerkt wordt in én met het groen: natuur, landbouw en tuin & landschap.

    Stelis, one of the largest genera within Pleurothallidinae, was recently recircumscribed to include a few hundred more species, most of which had previously been assigned to Pleurothallis. Here, a new phylogenetic analysis of Stelis and closely related genera based on DNA sequences from nuclear ITS and chloroplast matK, based on a much larger sample, is presented; it includes more than 100 species assigned to Stelis and covers all proposed groupings within the genus, many of which have not previously been represented. Clades are proposed to enable easier discussion of groups of closely related species; each clade is characterized morphologically, ecologically, and geographically to explain the evidence found in the molecular analysis. Discussion of the evolutionary trends of character states found in the genus in its broad sense is given. The current taxonomy of the group is given and the possible taxonomical implications of the findings presented here are discussed.

    It is important that taxonomic knowledge is disseminated by those who possess it. This can be carried out via online databases, printed publications or training in taxonomic practice. For Annonaceae, the online database AnnonBase includes all published names of Annonaceae at any rank worldwide. Recently, an updated index to genera, species and infraspecific taxa of Neotropical Annonaceae was published in hard copy. This manuscript contains a concise update to the Bibliography of Annonaceae published by the late E. A. Mennega in 1993. Since his publication, much work has been carried out on systematics and evolution of Annonaceae, with the advent of molecular phylogenetics providing an additional stimulus. Here, however, we concentrate only on taxonomic papers focusing specifically on the description and circumscription of taxa (e.g. revisions, monographs, floras, checklists, descriptions of new species or phylogenetic studies that show monophyly/polyphyly/paraphyly of genera). The index should provide an easy entrance into the most important taxonomic literature on Annonaceae from 1900 onwards for the trained and untrained taxonomist with an interest in Annonaceae.

    Grote technische ontwikkelingen en toenemende welvaart hebben in de loop der eeuwen de natuur dichter bij de mens gebracht. In deze tentoonstelling staat de gebruiker van het door de mens geschapen groen centraal. Rond drie thema’s: particulier groen, wandelen in openbaar groen en wonen in het groen, wordt de bezoeker meegenomen langs tuinen van adel en burgerij, door openbare parken, dierentuinen en schooltuinen en tenslotte door tuinsteden, villaparken en arbeiders-woonwijken. De tentoonstelling toont aan dat de Nederlandse tuin- en landschaps-architectuur altijd beïnvloed is geweest door ideeën uit Duitsland, Frankrijk en Engeland. Er worden boeken getoond van auteurs zoals Petrus Lauremberg (Horticultura, libris II, 1632), Anthoine Dezallier d'Argenville (La theorie et la pratique du jardinage, 1711) en William Robinson (The English flower garden, 1893). Hun invloed is terug te vinden in boeken, kaarten, foto’s en ontwerpen van o.a. Heinrich Witte (Tuinen, villa’s en buitenplaatsen, 1876-1878), Henri Hartogh Heys van Zouteveen (Boomen en heesters in parken en tuinen, 1908), Leonard Springer en vele anderen. De tentoongestelde documenten plaatsen de gebruikers van het groen in eigen tijd en omgeving.
    Quality indicators for passport data in ex situ genebanks

    Plant genetic resources: characterization and utilization 9 (2011)3. - ISSN 1479-2621 - p. 478 - 485.
    Given the increasing importance of data quality for the ex situ conservation and utilization of plant genetic resources (PGR), an indicator was created that quantifies the level of completeness of passport data. This passport data completeness index (PDCI) uses the presence or absence of data points in the documentation of a genebank accession, taking into account the presence or value of other data points. For example, a wild accession should have a well-defined collection site but no variety name. Any type of accession, wild, landrace, breeding material or modern variety, can attain a maximal score of ten for this index. The applicability of this index was tested on the complete contents of EURISCO, the European catalogue of ex situ maintained PGR containing over one million records. Analysis of the PDCI of the material in EURISCO provided valuable insight in the data quality of European collections. The PDCI can be used to identify datasets that might need additional attention and improvement or datasets that need more careful interpretation than others.
    Comparative performance of the Mbita trap, CDC light trap and the human landing catch in the sampling of Anopheles arabiensis, An. funestus and culicine species in a rice irrigation in western Kenya

    Background: Mosquitoes sampling is an important component in malaria control. However, most of the methods used have several shortcomings and hence there is a need to develop and calibrate new methods. The Mbita trap for capturing host-seeking mosquitoes was recently developed and successfully tested in Kenya. However, the Mbita trap is less effective at catching outdoor-biting Anopheles funestus and Anopheles arabiensis in Madagascar and, thus, there is need to further evaluate this trap in diverse epidemiological settings. This study reports a field evaluation of the Mbita trap in a rice irrigation scheme in Kenya Methods: The mosquito sampling efficiency of the Mbita trap was compared to that of the CDC light trap and the human landing catch in western Kenya. Data was analysed by Bayesian regression of linear and non-linear models. Results: The Mbita trap caught about 17%, 60%, and 20% of the number of An. arabiensis, An. funestus, and culicine species caught in the human landing collections respectively. There was consistency in sampling proportionality between the Mbita trap and the human landing catch for both An. arabiensis and the culicine species. For An. funestus, the Mbita trap portrayed some density-dependent sampling efficiency that suggested lowered sampling efficiency of human landing catch at low densities. The CDC light trap caught about 60%, 120%, and 552% of the number of An. arabiensis, An. funestus, and culicine species caught in the human landing collections respectively. There was consistency in the sampling proportionality between the CDC light trap and the human landing catch for both An. arabiensis and An. funestus, whereas for the culicines, there was no simple relationship between the two methods. Conclusions: The Mbita trap is less sensitive than either the human landing catch or the CDC light trap. However, for a given investment of time and money, it is likely to catch more mosquitoes over a longer ( and hence more representative) period. This trap can therefore be recommended for use by community members for passive mosquito surveillance. Nonetheless, there is still a need to develop new sampling methods for some epidemiological settings. The human landing catch should be maintained as the standard reference method for use in calibrating new methods for sampling the human biting population of mosquitoes.
    Comparative field evaluation of the Mbita trap, the Centers for Disease Control light trap, and the human landing catch for sampling of malaria vectors in western Kenya

    The mosquito sampling efficiency of a new bed net trap (the Mbita trap) was compared with that of the Centers for Disease Control miniature light trap (hung adjacent to an occupied bed net) and the human landing catch in western Kenya. Overall, the Mbita trap caught 48.7 +/- 4.8% (mean SEM) the number of Anopheles gambiae Giles sensu lato caught in the human landing catch and 27.4 +/- 8.2% of the number caught by the light trap. The corresponding figures for Anopheles funestus Giles were 74.6 +/- 1.3% and 39.2 +/- 1.9%, respectively. Despite the clear differences in the numbers of mosquitoes caught by each method, both the Mbita trap and light trap catches were directly proportional to human landing catches regardless of mosquito density. No significant differences in parity or sporozoite incidence were observed between mosquitoes caught by the three methods for either An. gambiae s.l. or An. funestus. Identification of the sibling species of the An. gambiae complex by a polymerase chain reaction indicated that the ratio of An. gambiae Giles sensu stricto to An. arabiensis Patton did not vary according to the sampling method used. It is concluded that the Mbita trap is a promising tool for sampling malaria vector populations since its catch can be readily converted into equivalent human biting catch, it can be applied more intensively, it requires neither expensive equipment nor skilled personnel, and it samples mosquitoes in an exposure-free manner. Such intensive sampling capability will allow cost-effective surveillance of malaria transmission at much finer spatial and temporal resolution than has been previously possible.

    Biobanks correspond to different situations: research and technological development, medical diagnosis or therapeutic activities. Their status is not clearly defined. We aimed to investigate human biobanking in Europe, particularly in relation to organisational, economic and ethical issues in various national contexts. Data from a survey in six EU countries (France, Germany, the Netherlands, Portugal, Spain and the UK) were collected as part of a European Research Project examining human and non-human biobanking (EUROGENBANK, coordinated by Professor JC Galloux). A total of 147 institutions concerned with biobanking of human samples and data were investigated by questionnaires and interviews. Most institutions surveyed belong to the public or private non-profit-making sectors, which have a key role in biobanking. This activity is increasing in all countries because few samples are discarded and genetic research is proliferating. Collections vary in size, many being small and only a few very large. Their purpose is often research, or research and healthcare, mostly in the context of disease studies. A specific budget is very rarely allocated to biobanking and costs are not often evaluated. Samples are usually provided free of charge and gifts and exchanges are the common rule. Good practice guidelines are generally followed and quality controls are performed but quality procedures are not always clearly explained. Associated data are usually computerised (identified or identifiable samples). Biobankers generally favour centralisation of data rather than of samples. Legal and ethical harmonisation within Europe is considered likely to facilitate international collaboration. We propose a series of recommendations and suggestions arising from the EUROGENBANK project.

    Door reorganisatie binnen de Stichting Dienst Landbouwkundig Onderzoek beschikt Alterra over drie archieven: TAGA, BIS en Dorschkamparchief. De archieven bevatten bodem- en gewasgegevens over een lange periode en zijn afkomstig van een groot aantal onderzoekingen gericht op de landbouw, de bodem en op bosbouw. Alle archieven stellen de bodem centraal. De archieven zijn complementair qua inhoud aan informatie. Daardoor versterken de archieven elkaar. Alterra beschikt daardoor over een unieke wetenschappelijke en strategische collectie. De archieven verschillen in de mate van ontsluiting: BIS is relatief goed ontsloten omdat het is gerelateerd aan de bodemkaart van Nederland; de ontsluiting van TAGA en Dorschkamparchief laat te wensen over. De toegankelijkheid van de drie archieven is onvoldoende. In het kader van strategische expertiseontwikkeling is een studie uitgevoerd om de drie archieven beter te ontsluiten en toegankelijk te maken. Daartoe is de informatie van de archieven beschreven en is de structuur voor een gemeenschappelijke interface opgesteld. Om deze interface te kunnen gebruiken zal de mate van ontsluiting van TAGA en Dorschkamparchief verbeterd moeten worden. Een gemeenschappelijke opslag van monsters en bijhorende gegevens van TAGAen Dorschkamparchief wordt aanbevolen. Het rapport geeft aan welke onderdelen verbetering behoeven. De structuur van de interface staat toe dat integraal in de drie bestanden informatie opgevraagd kan worden. Daarnaast kunnen de archieven onafhankelijk op gewenste informatie onderzocht worden.
