The lesions of locoweed
(Astragalus mollissimus), swainsonine, and castanospermine in rats.
The second challenge is that even though many of the foods that elicit emesis, nausea, or generalized malaise also condition a feeding aversion (Parker, 2006), there are many exceptions (e.g., larkspur, locoweed
, and PA-containing plants).
Still, some easy-to-see flowers include skyrocket gilia, alpine lupines (notice their fuzziness), lewisias, penstemons, draba, silene, locoweed

Lack of maternal influence of lamb consumption of locoweed
It has been used as an instrument drug to study glucoprotein N-link oligosaccharide since its initial extraction from the fruit of Australian Swainsona canescens and North America locoweed
(including Astragalus and Oxytropis spp.) (Dantas et al.
: Any of several leguminous plants of western North America causing locoism in livestock.
We focused on six native species that were abundant and had floral morphologies (flower shapes) that varied from legumes with hidden nectaries and anthers (purple locoweed
[Oxytropis lambertii] and American vetch [Vicia americana]), to species with dish-shaped flowers and obvious pollen and nectar (prairie flax [Linum lewisii], yellow sundrops [Calylophus serrulatus], and scarlet globemallow [Sphaeralcea coccinea]), to the bell-shaped flowers of blue bellflower (Campanula rotundifolia).
, poisonous to livestock, contains a component that destroys malignancies.
On inland dunes, open swaths of sand provide habitat for sunloving annual plants and low-growing desert wildflowers such as white evening primrose, pink sand verbena, and violet locoweed
. In the troughs between the dunes (interdune areas), you'll find scurf-pea and "blowout" or bunchgrasses, and at dune edges, taller shrubby plants like creosote bush, four-winged saltbush, honey mesquite.
