One theory in plant antiherbivore defense predicts that slow growing late succession plants like white spruce (Picea glauca) make large investments in antiherbivore defenses. Juvenile stages of white… (More)
The composition of the steam-volatile leaf oils of Fijian Ocimum basilicum L. (sweet basil) has been determined by the use of capillary gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. The major… (More)
SummaryThe ‘plant defense guild’ hypothesis for the evolution of plant secondary chemicals predicts that plant species defend themselves against generalist herbivores such as the snowshoe hare (Lepus… (More)
Abstract Dysoxylin, a new limonoid, was isolated from the fresh leaves of Dysoxylum richii collected in Suva, Fiji. The proposed structure was based on spectral assignments and chemical… (More)
The formation of several derivatives of furfural and syringic acid, including some incorporating both components, is described. Assignments of the 1H and 13C n.m.r . spectra are also included.
Three new limonoids have been isolated from the Fijian medicinal plant Dysoxylumrichii. Dried D. richii leaves collected at Suva yielded the known limonoid dysoxylin (1) as well as the previously… (More)
Abstract The structure of dysoxysulfone (1), a sulfur rich antibiotic isolated from leaves of the Fijian plant Dysoxylum richii, has been determined by a single crystal x-ray diffraction analysis.
