Abstract: We find and classify all first-order conservation laws in the Stroh formalism. All possible non-semisimple degeneracies are considered. The laws are found to depend on three arbitrary analytic functions. In some instances, there is an ``extra'' law which is quadratic in . Separable and inseparable canonical forms for the stored energy function are given for each type of degeneracy and they are used to compute the conservation laws. The existence of a real Stroh eigenvector is found to be a necessary and sufficient condition for separability. The laws themselves are stated in terms of the Stroh eigenvectors.
