An impediment to studying the implications of fine-scale variation in the distribution of secondary compounds within plants has been an inability to map their distribution. Conventional approaches require fine-scale dissections, followed by extraction and analysis, a strategy which is often limited by the large number of extractions required and by the difficulty in quantifying compounds in very small samples. A method has been developed which allows the microwave-facilitated transfer of… CONTINUE READING
