Zhou, Jue; Qu, Fan & Yu, Yongping

Abstract

The study was designated to complete a chemical and ecological evaluation of a genuine Chinese medicine Atractylodes Macrocephala check for this species in other resources Koidz (A. macrocephala) and to explore the existence of correlation between chemical ingredients of different A. macrocephala populations and ecological factors. Different samples of A. macrocephala collected from six Chinese habitats were analyzed using chemical and ecological methods. The results showed the bioactive ingredients of A. macrocephala to be closely related to ecological factors. The study can serve the purposes of preservation and development of genuine Chinese medicines.
