Abstract:
A detailed study of the levels of sesquiterpenoids and diterpenoids in essential oils from 36 specimens of Podocarpus hallii from two populations has revealed considerable infraspecific variation both within and between populations. The unusual tetracyclic diterpene laurenene, which has previously been encountered only in Podocarpus totara and Dacrydium cupressinum, was found at low levels in several of the samples.
