Annals of jatrlpha Missouri Botanical Garden, 81 2: Riparian zones are most vulnerable to J. Studies have shown the potential of the species for the development of new tools for biochemical analysis. While moisture availability appears to be a key driver of flower production, temperature may influence timing and duration Bebawi et al.

It is a pantropical species originating from South America that is cultivated in tropical countries throughout the world [ 20 — 22 ]. Detailed taxonomic, genetic and ecological studies are now required to verify the differences which could have implications for management, particularly selection of biological control gossyoifolia. DPPH free radical, ferric thiocyanate, and nitric gossypioflia scavenging methods were used to analyze the antioxidant activity in vitro of methanol, ethyl acetate, and aqueous extracts, demonstrating positive results.

In north Queensland, seedling densities can be very high under favourable environmental conditions.

Propagation and planting Jatropha gossypiifolia can be propagated by seed and rhizome or stem cuttings. In addition, up till now it is not clear which are the major bioactive compounds in the plant, since only a few studies were conducted by bioassay-guided isolation.


Journal of Mycopathological Research 34 1: There are also the following vernacular names for J. Once on the ground, some ants particularly native meat ants Iridomyrmex spadius disperse J. View at Jatropua Scholar D.

On the other hand, a study showed that different extracts petrol ether, chloroform, ethyl acetate, and n -butanol from whole plant of J. Following germination, the primary stem main axis grows until flowering is initiated FF Bebawi, Biosecurity Queensland, Australia, gossypifplia communication, Distribution Table Top of page The distribution in this summary table is based on all the information available.

The leaf bath is also used for treating sores, sprains, rashes jafropha bewitchment in Latin America and the Carribean [ 25 ].

Jatropha gossypiifolia (bellyache bush)

Flame throwers have been tested for treatment of J. Dehgan found that short days result in production of more male flowers, while long days caused either a drastic increase in or total change to female flowers. The nectar is attractive to insects, which are essential gossypifolis normal seed set Reddi and Reddi, ; Wild, Moreover, it inhibited, in a concentration-dependent and noncompetitive manner, the contractile response induced by norepinephrine or CaCl 2 in the same preparation [ 45 ].

Title Invasive habit Caption Dense infestation of an ephemeral river. In north Queensland, flooding of the Palmer River in March and April killed all plants that were growing in the riverbed FF Bebawi, Jatropga Queensland, Australia, personal communication, Title Germinated seeds Caption Germinated seeds of bellyache bush.


In Central America biological control is effected through Jatropha mosaic virus transferred by white fly and recently in northern Australia through the seed-sucking bug Agonosoma trilineatum.

Jatrophane diterpenes from the latex of Euphorbia obtusifolia with inhibitory activity on the mammalian mitrochondrial respiratory chain.

The response of bellyache tossypifolia Jatropha gossypiifolia plants cut off at different heights and seasonal times. In Queensland Australiaplants are capable of growing to 4 m with a canopy diameter of 2 m and a basal stem diameter up to 15 cm Bebawi and Campbell, b ; Vitelli and Madigan, Queensland Department of Natural Resources, unpaginated.

However, according to these jatrophz, on the seventh day of the experiment, there was a decrease in the action of the extract, suggesting that the extract, in this experiment, was less active in later stages of healing process [ ]. An aqueous extract of the stems increased the amplitude between the systolic tone and the diastolic tone of the arterial pressure in guinea pig. Similarly the protein precipitant obtained when used for CSF and urine analysis was significant enough to be quantified turbidometrically.

Many insect species have been observed foraging on nectar of J. West African uses of wild and cultivated plants. Elevated CO 2 had no significant effect on morning xylem water potential, leaf osmotic potential, or pressure potential of J.
