 Title    Chemistry and Morphology of Epicuticular Waxes from Leaves of Five Euphorbia Species  
 Abstract    The surface w axes o f five E uphorbia species (E uphorbiaceae) were studied by chemical m ethods and by scanning electron microscopy. The yields o f epicuticular waxes, expressed as percentages o f the dry w eights, differed from species to species. Q ualitatively the five species showed the same wax com position but differences appeared in the am ounts o f single wax com po­ nents and in their distribution patterns. The predom inance o f mainly saturated and long chained com ponents as w ell as the high amounts o f primary alcohols and triterpenols resulted in crystalline wax layers. The com parable chemical wax com position o f all five species resulted in a quite similar morphological appearance o f wax crystals.
