Most data on aluminum levels in wild plants are based on the aluminon test of Chenery (1948b), which is a semiquantitative analysis.
We would like to emphasize that information on aluminum hyperaccumulation can be gathered easily in unexplored families by simple but adequate methods, such as the aluminon test of leaves (Chenery, 1948a) or the chrome azurol-S test of wood (Kukachka & Miller, 1980).
