Figure 4 Relationship between plant population density (p) and total dry leaf yield (t ha) (l a> 0.003764 + 0.00131p), a> wt plant (Adapted from Laughlin, 1993). 7 and 11 plants m2 and obtained the highest biomass at the highest density. In Australia (Tasmania) a field experiment with a Yugoslavian strain compared 1, 5, 10, 15 and 20 plants m2 at a November transplanting and found that leaf dry matter yield increased up to a density of 20 plants m2 (Fig. 4). However yield at 10 plants m2...

Most species of Artemisia contain polyacetylenes, flavonoids and terpenoids but some species also contain other types of constituents such as cyanogenic glycosides and coumarins. According to a national survey of the medicinal plants of China, more than sixty Artemisia species are used in different areas...

Traditional Chinese Medicine

A large population in South East Asia has used TCM for thousands of years, and it is still practised in parallel with western medicine in the healthcare system in China owing to its unique theoretical basis and proven therapeutic efficacy. The theory and practise of TCM is complex and space does not permit a detailed consideration here however, a brief account is given below in order to help the reader appreciate the use of Artemisia species in TCM. The underlying principle of TCM lies in the...

Preface To The Series

There is increasing interest in industry, academia and the health sciences in medicinal and aromatic plants. In passing from plant production to the eventual product used by the public, many sciences are involved. This series brings together information which is currently scattered through an ever increasing number of journals. Each volume gives an in-depth look at one plant genus, about which an area specialist has assembled information ranging from the production of the plant to market trends...
