There is a resurgence of interest in the quantification of polyphenols in plant tissues because of their presumed ecological importance in plant–litter–soil and plant–animal interactions. The influence of sample preparation, extracting solvent, foliage quality, and assay method was investigated for the quantification of total phenols and condensed tannins in conifer foliage. Our results suggest that it is not possible to recommend a single optimal protocol for quantification of total phenol and… CONTINUE READING
