rich in essential polyunsaturated fatty acids. It is a source of oleic acid (47.7%) and linoleic acid (29.3) [10] and is rich in minor and noble compounds like tocopherols, polyphenols, sterols, carotenoids, xanthophyls, squalene [11], and saponins [12]. Many scientific studies have reported that the oil has many pharmacological effects, such as antioxidant [13], antiproliferative [14], cardioprotective [15], and hypolipemiant [16] activities. The aim of this present work was to determinate the… 
High‐throughput screening of argan oil composition and authenticity using benchtop 1H NMR
TLDR
The low‐field NMR spectrum of neat oil contains sufficient information to make estimates of compositional parameters and to inform on the presence of minor compounds, and a screening method based on nearest‐neighbour outlier detection is presented.
Fatty Acid Composition of Cosmetic Argan Oil: Provenience and Authenticity Criteria
TLDR
The feasibility of implementing authenticity criteria for argan oils by including limit values for trans-fatty acids and the ability to discern provenance using fatty acid profiling is shown.

TLDR
Argan oil with its high content of the vitamer &ggr;-tocopherol, squalene and oleic acid is likely to enhance the cancer prevention effects of the Moroccan diet.
Biodiversité et biogéographie de l’arganeraie marocaine
TLDR
La biodiversite vegetale de l’arganeraie tient son originalite de the presence of lignees meso-megathermes, d’especes de souche tropicale et d”endemiques, c’est un aspect necessaire a une conservation rationnelle of cette vegetation.
