The genetic basis of foliar terpene yield: implications for breeding and profitability of Australian essential oil crops

Webb, Hamish; Foley, William J.; Külheim, Carsten


The family Myrtaceae is known for its high foliar terpene concentrations as well as significant qualitative and quantitative variation in foliar terpenes between taxa, populations and individuals. To date, few studies have investigated the genetic and biochemical processes, which underlie this variation, much of which is known to be under genetic control. Differences in yield are both ecologically and commercially important and a better understanding of its basis will allow a greater...[Show more]
