Poisoning by plants which contain salts of oxalic acid may be a more common cause of stock losses in Western Australia than was previously thought.
This article describes the effects of these plants on ruminants and outlines an experiment in which the toxicity of soursob was examined.
An article in next month's Journal of Agriculture will describe the most important oxalate-containing plants found in Western Australia.
