On the geographic variability of the mono terpenes from the cortical blister oleo resin of abies lasiocarpa g


Phytochemistry (Oxford) 9(2): 377-395
On the geographic variability of the mono terpenes from the cortical blister oleo resin of abies lasiocarpa g
Over 400 trees of Abies lasiocarpa from fifty localities covering its entire range have been examined for composition of the cortical monoterpenes. The existence of two chemical variants was demonstrated. One of these was distributed predominantly in the areas closer to the Pacific coast, and contained turpentine with large amounts of beta -pinene and beta -phellandrene and small amounts of limonene; the other, concentrated mainly in the U.S. Rocky Mountains, produced turpentine with large amounts of limonene and small amounts of the other two compounds. The frequency distribution diagrams for the monoterpenes were either polymodal or skewed, thus suggesting control by few genes only. Strong positive correlation between beta -pinene and beta -phellandrene, and strong negative correlations between the sum of these compounds and limonene, was obtained.
