    Macrophotographic wood atlas of Annonaceae.
    Koek-Noorman, J. ; Westra, L.I.T. - \ 2012
    Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society 169 (2012)1. - ISSN 0024-4074 - p. 135 - 189.

    In this article, a general description of the microscopic wood anatomy of Annonaceae is given. We provide a description of the wood anatomical features of the family and of all subfamilies and tribes, all from material in the Utrecht Wood collection. Hand-lens images can be an important help in identification, not only at the family level, but also at the level of genera or below, notwithstanding the fact that the number of characters that can be easily observed in end-grain photographs is restricted. The differences are often slight and difficult to summarize in a few words, making illustrations an indispensable tool. Therefore, we provide end-grain photographs of cross-sections of wood of 66 genera and > 90 species of Annonaceae. The variation seen in lens key characters is discussed against the framework of the current phylogenetic tree of the family. Additional remarks on microscopic features are given when appropriate
    Classification of a large and widespread genus of Neotropical trees, Guatteria (Annonaceae) and its three satellite genera Guatteriella, Guatteriopsis and Heteropetalum

    Guatteria (Annonaceae) is with ca. 265 species one of the largest genera of Neotropical trees together with Inga and Ocotea. Use of Guatteria in evolutionary studies has been hampered by taxonomic problems caused by lack of morphological variability in the genus. This study focuses on molecular phylogenetic relationships within Guatteria and its satellites Guatteriopsis, Guatteriella and Heteropetalum, and implications of these relationships for classification and character evolution. Results show that Guatteriopsis, Guatteriella and Heteropetalum should be merged with Guatteria. Heteropetalum may be recognized at subgeneric level because of its aberrant morphology and Guatteriopsis and Guatteriella might be given sectional status. Most of the currently recognised sections in Guatteria are probably non-monophyletic. A completely new infrageneric classification of Guatteria would be premature, however, due to the lack of molecular and morphological synapomorphies to define the sections. Synapomorphies defining Guatteria s.str. probably evolved after divergence of several early branching lineages

    Studies in Annonaceae XXXVI. The Duguetia alliance: where the ways part
    Chatrou, L.W. ; Koek-Noorman, J. ; Maas, P.J.M. - \ 2000

    phylogenetic analysis
    Results of a cladistic analysis of morphological and anatomical data of the Duguetia alliance (Annonaceae) are presented. Several novel characters, or characters so far not incorporated into phylogenetic analyses, are used. Parsimony analysis resulted in two strongly supported clades: a Fusaea clade, comprising Fusaea, Duckeanthus, Letestudoxa, and Pseudartabotrys, and a Duguetia clade, comprising all Neotropical and African species of Duguetia. Support for the past distinction of Pachypodanthium from Duguetia appears to be absent. Characters used to resolve relationships between and within the two clades are difficult to polarize by outgroup comparison. It is demonstrated that the critical reassessment of classical morphological characters, and the search for new ones, may well advance phylogenetic resolution within Annonaceae

    Directie Noord van het Ministerie van Landbouw, Natuurbeheer en Visserij heeft de behoefte aan een toekomstverkenning voor Noord-Nederland ter ondersteuning van de strategische beleidsvorming. Hiervoor zijn drie scenario's ontworpen: `Raamwerk', `Weefwerk' en `Marktwerk'. Van elk van de scenario's zijn de effecten op landbouw, natuur, landschap en recreatie bepaald. In `Raamwerk' zijn de ontwikkelingen grootschalig en zijn de functies gescheiden. Het aantal arbeidsplaatsen in de landbouw daalt met 5z% per jaar. Natuurontwikkeling vindt plaats in grote eenheden begeleid-natuurlijke natuur. Er ontstaat een duidelijke landschapstructuur op landsdelig niveau. `Weefwerk' zijn functies meer verweven en is het landschap kleinschaliger. Agrariërs hebben vaak nevenactiviteiten buiten de landbouw waardoor de landbouwbedrijven weinig in omvang toenemen en het aantal werkenden in de landbouw met slechts 1% per jaar daalt. Er ontstaan grote aaneengesloten gebieden waar natuurontwikkeling verweven is met andere functies. De duurzaamheid van dierpopulaties neemt in dit scenario het sterkst toe. Ook de verschillende landschapstypen blijven behouden of worden versterkt. In `Marktwerk' verdwijnt het markt- en prijsbeleid in de landbouw en stuurt de overheid de ruimtelijke ordening slechts op hoofdlijnen. De akkerbouw in Noord-Nederland moet plaatsmaken voor grote veehouderijbedrijven. Het aantal werkenden in de landbouw daalt ruimt 4% per jaar. Bestaande landschapswaarden worden in dit scenario het meest aangetast. Met name waterrecreatie neemt sterk toe, waardoor overdruksituaties rond de Friese Meren kunnen ontstaan.
    A benefit-cost analysis of veterinary interventions in Afghanistan based on a livestock mortality study.

    This article evaluates a veterinary intervention program of the Dutch Committee for Afghanistan, started during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, a 10 year period during which veterinary services were otherwise completed disrupted. The veterinary field program was carried out mainly by paravets. A questionnaire-based survey was conducted to measure livestock mortality in districts that received veterinary services through the project and in neighboring districts that had not had veterinary services for about 10 years. The survey indicated that livestock mortality in districts that received veterinary services was lower than in districts without any veterinary services. Comparison of each of the 22 age-species-specific district pairs showed a difference in favor of the covered district in 18 pairs. In 12 out of these 18 pairs, this difference was significant. Overall annual mortality rates differed (in relative amounts) by 25%, 30%, and 22%, in calves, lambs, and kids, respectively, and in adult cattle, sheep, and goats, by roughly 30%, 40%, and 60%, respectively. In the absence of any other obvious distinctive features between the compared districts, we concluded that this difference in mortality was due to the presence or absence of veterinary services. A benefit-cost analysis showed that the benefit-cost ratio for the program was between 1.8 and 4.8. The high benefit-cost ratio resulted partly from the fact that the costs of the program were low, because it was implemented by a volunteer-run, non-governmental organization. In addition, due to the special circumstances prevailing in the country, any input in combatting diseases at this stage was bound to have a relatively high impact. We concluded that: (1) the veterinary program was important for the rebuilding of numbers of livestock and thus for the economy of Afghanistan, and (2) veterinary intervention programs under these and comparable circumstances can be highly cost-effective.
