Screening of Main Japanese Conifers for Antifungal Leaf Components, Sesquiterpenes of Juniperus chinensis var. pyramidalis

Abstract

Introduction There are many varieties of available natural resources whose method of effective utilization has not been established. Now, the development of such exploitable studies is opportune in various fields of industry. For instance, in the forest industry, the development of methods to utilize the enormous amounts of leaves and branches left after timber harvesting is of great interest, and related studies are under way. The trial development on the effective utilization of essential oils from tree leaves, especially needles, has been regarded with keen interest in Japan (Yatagai et aL 1985a, b; Yatagai and Sato 1986). Also, some studies on the utilization of leaf components for fungicides and fungi-repellents have been reported (Asada et aL 1989; Yatagai 1991). For example, Japanese conifer leaves such äs Chamaecyparis obtusa, C. obtusa var. breviramea, Thujopsis dolabrata, Thuja occidentalis, Abies sachalinensis and Tsuga sieboldü which are native to Japan, have been found to contain antifungal terpene components.
