Nota de alcance

PARTE UTILIZADA= Used part: Frutos, hojas.

ACCIÓN FARMACOLÓGICA= Pharmacological action : Calmante (frutos), antiinflamatorio externo (hojas).

COMPOSICIÓN QUÍMICA= Chemical composition: Tree foliage, Gliricidia sepium, Albizia lebbeck, Brosimum alicastrum, Sesbania grandiflora, digestibility, crude protein An in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD, %) study was conducted using rumen liquor as source of inoculum. Dry samples (leaf, stem and seed) of eight tropical trees were used as substrates. Crude protein in leaf dry matter ranged from 12.8% in Bursera simaruba to 23.4% in Sesbania grandiflora. The IVDMD was highest (74.3%) in Gliricidia sepium foliage and lowest (37.9%) in Guazuma ulmifolia. Albizia lebbeck had the highest in vitro digestibility for seeds (84.0%), while S. grandiflora had the highest value for stems (39.7%). The results suggest that at least four tree species (A. lebbeck, G. sepium, B. alicastrum and S. grandiflora) used in this study have high feeding value.

ZONA GEOGRÁFICA= Geografical zone: Argentina.
