    This one is very technical

    "Tube-type waxes containing substantial
    amounts of nonacosane-10-ol are dominant in the
    Gymnosperm genera (e.g Ginkgo, Taxus, Picea, Pinus or
    Abies) and have also been found in the Angiosperm
    genera (e.g. Chelidonium majus, Papaver somniferum,
    Prunus domestica or Rosa spp.)"

    On a side note, for me it is also interesting that the co-author of this research, Simona Dragota, is one conational of mine
