Abstract

Techniques used in different biological and industrial fields for the detection and quantification of tannin compounds in plants are discussed. Emphasis is placed on the choice of method for ecological investigations, which may benefit from the use of a method that measures relative astringency of plant extracts at reduced costs in time and equipment, permitting the analysis of larger samples than may be feasible with more sophisticated analytical techniques.
