Swartzia madagascariensis, Tetrapleura tetraptera, and analytical aspects of plant molluscicides


Swartzia madagascariensis, Tetrapleura tetraptera, and analytical aspects of plant molluscicides



Vector control of schistosomiasis using native African plants: Seminar, Brussels, 24 March 1992: 37-62



Swartzia madagascariensis and Tetrapleura tetraptera are two plants which have shown important molluscicidal activities in laboratory experiments. Since many of the criteria for plant molluscicides are fulfilled by both species, they were selected for limited trials in the field (in Tanzania for S. madagascariensis and in Nigeria for T. tetrapleura).Fruit extracts of the two trees were found to contain a high concentration of molluscicidal saponins.
