A Biochemical Interpretation of Terpene Chemotypes in Melaleuca alternifolia

Keszei, Andras; Hassan, Yasmin; Foley, William


The variation of foliar monoterpenes in the Australian Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia) has been of significant interest both to the essential oil industry as well as to ecologists. The majority of studies on leaf chemistry have been aimed directly towards obtaining oil of higher quality or quantity. In the current study, we aimed to understand how molecular mechanisms contribute to the chemical variability of this species, based on chemical analysis of the leaf oils from a biochemical...[Show more]
