The paper I came across about triacontanol was so amazing that I
kept the ref on-line, and since have added one more. They are
1991 Plant Physiol. 95:986 - 998
1993 Plant Physiol. 101: 49 - 55
These papers are both Reis et al. I hope they help. I am answering this
over the net in case others are interested in this compound.
