Habitat suitability analysis based on the oil content for the medicinal shrub
Gaultheria fragrantissima Wallich in the Nilgiris, Western Ghats, India

  • 1, ,

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.
