The fruit essential oils of two populations of Astrantia major L. (Apiaceae, subfamily Saniculoideae) were analyzed in detail by GC and GC/MS analyses. Seventy‐six constituents identified accounted for 92.7–94.0% of the oils. The two oils differed significantly: the wild‐growing population from Serbia contained zingiberene (47.9%), β‐bisabolene (9.7%), and β‐sesquiphellandrene (7.9%), while the one from Poland (botanical gardens) was sesquiterpene‐poor with the major contributors oleic acid (38…

A ‘Low‐Level’ Chemotaxonomic Analysis of the Plant Family Apiaceae: The Case of Scandix balansae Reut. ex Boiss. (Tribe Scandiceae)
MVA demonstrated that the evolution of the volatiles' metabolism of Scandiceae taxa was neither genera‐specific nor follows their morphological evolution, and possible applicability of the essential oils' compositional data in the taxonomy of Apiaceae was explored.
Chemical Composition of the Tuber Essential Oil from Helianthus tuberosus L. (Asteraceae)

(Un)Targeted Metabolomics in Asteraceae: Probing the Applicability of Essential‐Oil Profiles of Senecio L. (Senecioneae) Taxa in Chemotaxonomy
The possible applicability of (un)targeted metabolomics (volatile metabolites) for revealing taxonomic/evolutionary relationships among Senecio L. species (Asteraceae; tribe Senecioneae) was explored and the existence of at least two volatile chemotypes for S. vernalis was suggested.
Volatiles of Geranium purpureum Vill. and Geranium phaeum L.: Chemotaxonomy of Balkan Geranium and Erodium Species (Geraniaceae)
High chemical similarity of the two genera, visible from the obtained dendrograms and biplots, confirm the close phylogenetic relationship between the investigated Geranium and Erodium taxa, i.e., that there is no great intergeneric oil‐composition variability.
