Search for a standard phytotoxic bioassay for allelochemicals. Selection of standard target species.
In the search for a standard bioassay of phytotoxicity for allelochemicals, 22 commercial varieties of eight plant species [four dicotyledons: lettuce (Compositae), carrot (Umbelliferae), cressExpand
Allelopathy--a natural alternative for weed control.
Allelopathy studies the interactions among plants, fungi, algae and bacteria with the organisms living in a certain ecosystem, interactions that are mediated by the secondary metabolites produced andExpand
Just how insoluble are monoterpenes?
Prior generalizations about the ecological roles of monoterpenes may be misleading if based on the presumed insolubility of monoterpenes in water. We determined the aqueous solubility of 31Expand
Degradation studies on benzoxazinoids. Soil degradation dynamics of 2,4-dihydroxy-7-methoxy-(2H)-1,4-benzoxazin-3(4H)-one (DIMBOA) and its degradation products, phytotoxic allelochemicals from
Benzoxazinoids have been described as important allelochemicals from Gramineae as well as Acanthaceae, Rannunculaceae, and Scrophulariaceae plants. Several bioactivities have been described andExpand
Benzoxazinoids in Rye Allelopathy - From Discovery to Application in Sustainable Weed Control and Organic Farming
The allelopathic potency of rye (Secale cereale L.) is due mainly to the presence of phytotoxic benzoxazinones—compounds whose biosynthesis is developmentally regulated, with the highest accumulationExpand
Allelopathic agents from aquatic ecosystems: potential biopesticides models
Allelopathy is usually regarded as a terrestrial science and little attention has been paid to the allelochemicals involved in the interactions between aquatic autotrophs. Also, chemicals involved inExpand
Bioactive polar triterpenoids from Melilotus messanensis
Abstract In addition to the known 3-oxoplatanic acid, melilotigenin and soyasapogenol E, two new lupane (messagenic acids F, G), two nor-lupane triterpenic acids (messagenic acids H, I), and threeExpand
Isolation and Phytotoxicity of Terpenes from Tectona grandis
A study was carried out on the allelopathic potential of four forest species, Tectona grandis, Aleurites fordii, Gliricidia sepium, and Maytenus buxifolia. The most active species, T. grandis, wasExpand
Phytotoxins from Tithonia diversifolia.
Tithonia diversifolia (Mexican sunflower) is a dominant plant of the Asteraceae family, which suggests it produces allelochemicals that interfere with the development of surrounding plants. The studyExpand
