Dear Netters

	On behalf of a student, I'm looking for an assay for tannic acid
content of plant species, particularly trees. The student wants to 
correlate tannic acid content of various species with degree of avoidance
by browsers. The only assay presently available to him is an 
immunodiffusion assay of apparently doubtful sensitivity and/or accuracy.

	Thanks in advance for helping.
