EXTRACT. A part of a writing. In general this is not evidence, because the whole of the writing may explain the part extracted, so as to give it a different sense; but sometimes extracts from public books are evidence, as the extracts from the registers of births, marriages and burials, kept according to law, when the whole of the matter has been extracted which relates to the cause or matter in issue.

The inclusion levels of the pacari extract promoted a digestibility coefficient of the ethereal extract similar to halquinol and MOS (p < 0.04), possibly due to antimicrobial properties, attributed to the tannins present in the pacari extract, allowing a better use of the nutrients (Haslam, 1996, Hernandes, Pereira, Palazzo, & Mello, 2010).
In a study to evaluate the effects of tannins from barbatimao (Stryphnodendronsp) extract on the digestibility of nutrients in diets for Nile tilapia at levels 0; 0.23; 0.46; 0.69; 0.92; 1.3 and 1.82% of total tannins, it was verified that the tannin at concentrations equal to or greater than 0.46% in the diet reduced the digestibility of dry matter and crude protein, mainly digestibility of ethereal extract, from the concentrations of 0.23% of tannins (Pinto, Pezzato, Miranda, Baros, & Furuya, 2004).
The evaluation of the centesimal composition, in dry matter (%), gross protein (%), ethereal extract (%) and in mineral matter (%), of the meat it was fulfilled following the procedure described by Association of Official Analytical Chemistry [AOAC] (1995).
As shown in Table 2, topical application of the ointment prepared with the ethereal extracts of the Reboulia hemisphaerica, Plagiochasma rupestre and Targionia hypophylla onto the incised wounds demonstrated the best wound tensile strength by the highest values of 43.1, 38.3, and 24.3%, respectively.
The combined ethereal extracts for both extracts were washed several times with water until free of alkalinity and dehydrated over anhydrous sodium sulphate.
