Title: A Review of the Effects of Plant Estrogenic Substances on Animal Reproduction
Creators: Samuel, David E.

Abstract: In the 1940's, hormone-like substances were found in plants which caused reproductive difficulties in sheep. Since that time, various substances from many plants, such as alfalfa, ladino clover, and birdsfoot trefoil, have been indicated as the cause of such reproductive problems in mammals. Estrogen is one of the main substances shown to produce such effects. Questions consistently arising concern: the amounts of estrogen in certain plants, the variation of these amounts during different seasons, the effectiveness of such hormone substances taken orally, and the effects of varying consumptions of estrogencontaining plants on growth, reproduction, and other life activities of various species of wildlife.
