Abstract:Following conquest of the Netherlands East Indies by the Japanese, natural stands of cinchona trees in the Andes mountains of South America were exploited to supply military and civilian needs for natural antimalarial alkaloids. This paper presents a description of Cinchona officinalis, its site requirements, its yield of bark, and the alkaloid content of the bark in the eastern cordillera of the Colombian Andes.
