Appended to the pamphlet are tables showing the present state of cinchona-culture in Java, the rate of growths of the plants, and the results of chemical analyses of the various species cultivated. Monsieur van Gorkom has had the advantage of having his work rendered into the more generally accessible German language.

The main species introduced were Cinchona succirubra or red bark, as its sap turned red on contact with air, and Cinchona calisaya.

When the director of the Java Botanical Garden—Mr. Justus Hasskarl, of German origin—was about to travel to South America on a secret mission to acquire seed material, a German journalist broke the news. The main species introduced were Cinchona succirubra, or red bark, as its sap turned red on contact with air, and Cinchona calisaya.

The alkaloids quinine and cinchonine were extracted by Pierre Joseph Pelletier and Joseph Bienaimé Caventou in Two more key alkaloids, quinidine and cinchonidine, were later identified and it became a routine in quinology to Clade: Tracheophytes.

Quilled red bark from India averages about per cent.; that from Java is richer, yielding about per cent. Calisaya quills afford about 6 or 7 per cent, and pale bark about 6 per cent. Ledger bark from Java is the richest of all, yielding from 5 to 10 or even more per cent, of total alkaloid.
