The article investigates the determinants of the main constituents of the essential oils from two cultivated Artemisia (A.) species, A. fragrans and A. austriaca. The study is aimed at comparing the composition of the oils from the two cultivated species with those of wild species. The samples used were collected during August-September 2004 at the Botanical Garden of the Drug Applied Research Center in Tabriz, Iran. It was found that the species have the components camphor and cineole.
