ABSTRACT
All of the oils of J. phoenicea from the Canary Islands and
Madeira were very similar. The volatile leaf oils were dominated by -
pinene (57.3 - 76%) as was the oil from Morocco (65.4%). This is
higher than in J. p. var. phoenicea, Spain (41.2%) or var. turbinata,
Spain, (25.8%). The Madeira and Canary Island oils had moderate
amounts of -phellandrene (0.5 - 8.0%), myrcene (2.3 - 3.3%), -
