    The different species of the genus Datura have been used traditionally by some pre-Columbian civilizations, as well as in medieval rituals linked to magic and witchcraft in both Mexico and Europe. It is also noteworthy the use of different alkaloids. "Introduction", A Reference Guide to Medicinal Plants: Herbal Medicine Past and Present, John K. Crellin, Jane Philpott.

Alzheimer's disease facts and figures - Alzheimer's Association - Chicago Blakeslee: The Genus Datura - The Ronald Press Company - New York. In-text. Part of my motivation here is work done by Blakeslee years ago, and summarized quite nicely in the book "The Genus Datura" Blakeslee worked with Datura stramonium, or Jimsonweed, and it's relatives. He raised and crossed many Datura and found and explored many unusual genetic varieties. Can the similar thing be done with marigolds. I shall see.

Blakeslee became the school’s first true geneticist when he accepted a professorship in He was especially interested in plants in the genus Datura, such as jimson weed, because he considered it “the very best plant with which to discover the principles of heredity.” In particular, Blakeslee discovered that plant.

Datura, also called thorn apple, is a genus of about nine species of poisonous flowering plants in the nightshade family (Solanaceae).Several Datura species are collected for use as drugs, and others are cultivated for their showy flowers. Datura is a rich source of tropane alkaloids. These alkaloids are utilized as part of the chemotaxonomy of Solanaceae family.

However, recent studies indicate that all species in the genus originated in the Americas. This finding has prompted the conclusion that no species of Datura could have been present in the Old World prior to its introduction there by Europeans in the early 16th Cited by: While at the CAC, he focused primarily on the genus Datura (or the jimson weed), because, as Blakeslee said, “[it was] the very best plant with which to discover the principles of heredity.” His description seems apt, as Blakeslee had great success with this “thorn apple.”Author: Susan Vining.
