Phytosociological classification of vegetation is often justified on the grounds it provides a means of predicting properties other than floristic composition. It is difficult to find examples inliterature where this possibility of prediction is actually used. In this paper, we examine the qualitative variation in proazulenes of theAchillea millefolium group as a function of cytological, abiotic and floristic factors. Sixty-six sites in natural populations were examined. Twenty to forty… 
Distribution of proazulenes and productivity in Achillea millefolium L. spontaneous populations
The characterization of prozulenes distribution may suggest the rapidly identification of proazulnes-containing and high produvtive populations for pharmaceutical industry.
Distribution of proazulenes in Achillea millefolium s.l. wild populations in relation to phytosociological dependence and morphological characters
The study raised the possibility that selection based on the two morphological marker traits (node number and leaf width) and proazulene distribution in the populations would be effective for rapid identification of highly productive population(s) of pharmaceutical importance.
Intraspecific variability of yarrow (Achillea millefolium L. s.l.) in respect of developmental and chemical traits
Summary The aim of study was to determine the variability of 20 yarrow populations introduced into ex situ conditions, in respect of selected developmental traits as well as content and composition
Habitat occurrence and nutrition value of Achillea millefolium L. in grasslands.
In 1998-2000, in the area of Olsztyn Lake District, 33 plant communities on seminatural grasslands with a high percentage of Achillea millefolium L. were analyzed. The analyzed objects were located
Chromosome numbers within theAchillea millefolium and theA. distans Groups in the Czech Republic and Slovakia
TheAchillea millefolium group is represented in the Czech Republic and Slovakia by six species and the populations from Slovakia of theA.
Essential oil composition of two yarrow taxonomic forms
The inflorescences biosynthesised markedly larger amounts of nerolidol and ß-pinene than those of the leaves, and an opposite correlation was observed for caryophyllene oxide and eudesmol.
Conservation and Evaluation of Selected Medicinal and Aromatic Plants from Lithuania
This review focuses on research of medicinal and aromatic plants in Lithuania and describes how the conservation of genetic resources of these plants is considered. Biological peculiarities of
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.): A Neglected Panacea? A Review of Ethnobotany, Bioactivity, and Biomedical Research1
The combination of human use data from multiple cultures, independently reporting similar activities for yarrow, and the discovery of potentially relevant bioactivities by in vitro and animal studies represent meaningful evidence of the plant’s efficacy and it is argued that human clinical trials should be funded and conducted.
Yarrow (Achillea millefolium L.) Growth at Different Altitudes in Central Italian Alps: Biomass Yield, Oil Content and Quality
There was a remarkable change in some monoterpenes and sesquiterpenes: in particular α- and β-thujone were not present in oils from fields at a higher altitude, suggesting that their synthesis depends on both genetic and environmental factors.
Composition of Inflorescence and Leaf Essential Oils of Achillea millefolium L. with White, Pink and Deep Pink Flowers Growing Wild in Vilnius (Eastern Lithuania)
The inflorescences with different colored flowers produced markedly higher amounts of sabinene, β- pinene, 1,8-cineole, γ-terpinene,β-caryophyllene, α-humulene and (E)-nerolidol than leaves, and the above correlation was identified for mono- and sesquiterpene hydrocarbons.


Untersuchungen zum Heilpflanzenhandel in Deutschland. Ein Beitrag zum internationalen Artenschutz
This book is a collaborative effort on multiple levels: between a scientist and an avid gardener as authors, and between a government ministry and a commercial firm as publishers. As such it is a
Zytotaxonomische Untersuchungen des Formenkreises Achillea millefolium (Asteraceae) in der DDR
Chromosomenzahl, Morphologie and Proazulengehalt of 70 Wildpopulationen and deren Kulturen wurden untersucht, indicating clearly the occurence of the following species: A. millefolium-complex and among other species of the sect.
Systematische und zytogenetische Untersuchungen an europäischen Rassen desAchillea millefolium-Komplexes
Eine provisorische Gliederung der europäischen Sippen desAchillea-millefolium-Rassenkomplexes in fünf morphologisch, zytologicalisch, verbreitungsmäßig and ökologisch verschiedene Kleinarten vorgeschlagen ist festgestellt.
Allelopathy as a factor in ecological process
Biochemische Produkte kommen weitgehend in biotischen Wechselwirkungen vor und allelopathische Effekte spielen in fast allen natürlichen oder angepflanzten Pflanzengemeinschaften eine Rolle.
The Braun-Blanquet Approach
We shall, in this last chapter, treat the floristic-sociological or Braun-Blanquet approach to classification and interpretation of communities.
