Conservation Approach of Achillea santolina L. along the North Western Mediterranean Coastal Region of Egypt: Metabolite content

Abstract


The main objective of the present study is to evaluate some metabolite contents such as total free amino acids (TFAA), free proline (FP), soluble proteins (SP) and total soluble sugars (TSS) of an endangered medicinal plant Achillea santolina grown in six different locations distributed along the north western Mediterranean coastal region of Egypt. Results of the present study showed that the highest concentration of FP as well as SP was recorded at Ras El-Hekma location. Similarly, the concentration of TFAA in belowground was attained at El-Hammam location, while that of the aboveground was attained at Dabaa location. Notably, conservation of this species is necessary to meet the unlimited needs on medicinal plants as well as to minimize the human impact on destroying the natural resources.
