Abstract

Influence of genotype and environmental factors on the oil production of four ecological variants of the medicinal shrub, Gaultheria fragrantissima was evaluated across four sholas in Nilgiris of Western Ghats, India. The ovate leaf type variant of this species produced significantly higher content of oil (1.13%) than the lanceolate (0.96%), elliptic-lanceolate (0.91%) and oblanceolate (0.92%) leaf type variants.
