Litsea glutinosa Lour. Litsea laurifolia Jacq. The Indian laurel Litsea glutinosa Lour. It is a polymorphic species with leaves that are alternate and elliptical to oblong-elliptical, 3.
Umbels contain many small yellowish flowers, the males having stamens. Flowering occurs between March and June and fruits appear in September-October. Fruits are round and about 8 mm or less in diameter.
The tree is able to reproduce vegetatively, accounting for over half of the stems produced, mostly from root-suckers Rabena, ; Jacq et al. Litsea glutinosa is a multipurpose, fast-growing tree. In the Northern Philippines, the leaves are chopped and soaked in water to make plaster.
While Litsea glutinosa gives a poor timber due to its low wood density, it is often used as fuel Rabena, It is also used in ethnomedicine: in India, its bark and leaves are used as a demulcent and mild astringent for diarrhea and dysentery, and the paste of its roots is used as poultice for sprains and bruises Das et al.
More recently, Litsea glutinosa has been investigated as a source of essential oils, arabinoxylans and other components with antiseptic properties Prusti et al. It grows at an altitude of m above sea level, in forest margins, stream sides, sparse forests or thickets Huang Puhua et al. It colonizes all open areas but also survives in more shaded areas. It is also found in undisturbed forest Vos, In Mayotte, Litsea glutinosa grows where rainfall exceeds mm per year Ninot, The environmental status of Litsea glutinosa differs between countries.
In the Northern Philippines, it is considered as a disappearing useful multipurpose tree and is subject to a conservation program Rabena, Globally, Litsea glutinosa is not considered as invasive Jacq et al. However, it has a high invasion potential and displaces regenerating native plant species in disturbed environments GISD, In Mayotte, its utilization as fodder somewhat alleviates its pest status. The invasive properties of Litsea glutinosa can also be used for reforestation of damaged soils Jacq et al.
As usual, the composition depends on environmental and climatic factors, and on the stage of maturity Aubriot, Information on the fodder quality and use of Litsea glutinosa is limited. The leaf:stem ratio of the fodder that is usually fed is low 0. It is, therefore, necessary to cut and distribute twice the amount of fodder to obtain the expected intake. The other half only feed this fodder during the dry season when feed becomes scarce Aubriot, Avg: average or predicted value; SD: standard deviation; Min: minimum value; Max: maximum value; Nb: number of values samples used.
