Study on classification of Shandong Aconitum plants. 山东乌头属植物分类的研究.
Aconitum plants is very poisonous in which more than 100 di-terpene alkaloids were found. 因有毒成分乌头类二萜生物碱在体内代谢迅速，构成“隐形杀手”，大多数可疑乌头碱中毒案不能在体内检测到毒物因而不能为法庭提供可靠的法医鉴定结果，致使许多案件多年积压，悬而不结，加剧医疗法律纠纷，构成一个不小的社会问题。
The dubious cases of aconitine poisoning were caused by taking Aconitum Carmichaeli、aconitum kusnezoffii and monkshood generaly, and there are some cases caused by taking other Aconitum plants. 经负离子检测未检到代谢产物。
