CFREC-Apopka Research Report, RH-88-6


A table was published in 1976 (7) listing 27 tropical plants and
University of [tissue content found in good quality specimens of these species. Since
that time numerous experiments have been conducted and analyses performed.
The table below summarizes data collected over the last 12 years and
includes changes in previously published ranges for some plants and
additional plant species that were not listed in the original publication.
