ABSTRACT
Detailed analyses of the leaf essential oils of Abies lasiocarpa
var. lasiocarpa (Olympic Peninsula, WA), A. l. var. bifolia (MT, UT)
and A. l. var. arizonica (AZ) is presented to update the analyses of Hunt
and von Rudloff (1979). The coastal alpine fir (A. l. var. lasiocarpa) is
very strongly differentiated from all the Rocky Mtn. populations in
having only a trace of camphene, no limonene, a large amount (53.3%)
of -phellandrene, no borneol, a large amount of piperitone (9.2%),
