Among cinnamic acid derivatives (Table 2, [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 3 OMITTED]), concentrations of 5-caffeoylquinic and 5-coumaroylquinic acids were significantly higher in fertilized saplings, whereas the opposite was true for corresponding quinates substituted at 3-position (3-caffeoylquinic and 3-coumaroylquinic acids).
Among the quinates analyzed, concentrations of 5-coumaroylquinic acid and 5- and 3-caffeoylquinic acids were significantly lower in defoliated saplings, whereas the concentration of 3-coumaroylquinic acid showed no significant difference between defoliated and control saplings (Table 2, [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 3 OMITTED]).
