Kelsey, Rick G, Stevenson, Thomas I, Scholl, Jackson P, Watson Jr, Thomas J, and Shafizadeh, Fred, The chemical composition of the litter and soil in a community of Artemisia tridentata ssp. vaseyana: .

Summary

The leaves, litter, and soil from within a community of Artemisia tridentata ssp. vaseyana were analyzed for secondary metabolic products. Methacrolein, five monterpenes, three sesquiterpene lactones, six coumarins, and one flavonoid were identified in the leaves; the contents of the litter were nearly identical. Soils collected directly beneath the shrubs contained the three sesquiterpene lactones, two coumarins and an unknown flavonoid. The litter and water extracts of the litter inhibited the germination of sagebrush seeds. Soils charged with monoterpenes from sagebrush leaves also inhibited seed germination. In addition, the monoterpene contents from eight sagebrush taxa collected from Western Montana are reported. Published in [...]
