  • In a widespread arctic shrub species, Betula nana (Fig. 7.3), Graglia et al. [83] found that fertilization and shading generally led to decreased condensed and hydrolyzable tannin concentrations in leaves, whereas warming in small field greenhouses increased condensed tannins and decreased hydrolyzable tannins.

  • Analysis of soil samples taken from the cultivated layer after rice and fish were harvested indicated that organic matter content was 4.11%, total nitrogen 0.21%, total phosphorous 0.09%, alkali-hydrolyzable nitrogen 152.72 ppm, and content of available phosphorus

  • While it is often assumed that toxicity is due to tannic acid, garlic acid and pyrogallol (Basden and Dalvi, 1987) or to other, unspecified, low molecular weight compounds produced by the breakdown of hydrolyzable tannins in the gut

  • The focus then shifts to a systematic presentation of the various substrates classes, namely carboxylic esters, amides and peptides, lactams and lactones, esters of inorganic acids, alkene and arene epoxides, and some miscellaneous hydrolyzable moieties.
