    • Abstract

       

      The distribution of different chemical constituents in 6 species ofGardenia is numerically analysed. The quantified chemical data show that the taxa studied are closely related and suggest that they could be divided into 4 clusters. Based on the established criteria of simplicity and complexity in biosynthetic pathways, rarity and ubiquity in distribution of the chemical constituents and/or correlation studiesGardenia longistyla, Gardenia resinifera andGardenia thumbergia have tentatively been found to be relatively advanced over the other 3.
