Volatile needle and wood extracts of oriental spruce obtained from trees grown naturally in eastern Black Sea regions and in an cultivated stand near Istanbul were analysed by GC-MS. Despite considerable differences in both tree-to-tree and natural-to-cultivated aspects, the needle and wood extracts exhibit characteristic compounds, which might be of chemotaxonomic interest. The monoterpenes delta-3-carene, limonene and bornyl acetate dominate in the needles, whereas the appreciable amounts of labdadienol isomers and high content of diterpenoids characterize the wood extracts.
