Mengli Zhao, Xinlei Gao, Jing Wang, Xiaolei He and Bing Han A review of the most economically important poisonous plants to the livestock industry on temperate grasslands of China Journal of Applied Toxicology 33
A review of the Chinese literature was conducted to summarize the occurrence of poisonous plant species on temperate grasslands in China. We focus on locoweeds (Astragalus and Oxytropis spp.), drunken horse grass (Achnatherum inebrians [Hance] Keng ex Tzvelev), and langdu (Stellera chamaejasme L.) for information on their toxins, distribution and ecology, control methods and alternate uses. Of the almost 1300 poisonous species found on grasslands in China, these species are responsible for an estimated 80% of all livestock losses.
