This important new edition commences with an overview of the biochemistry, physiology, functions and utilisation of plant secondary metabolites, followed by detailed surveys of alkaloids and betalains, cyanogenic glycosides, glucosinolates and non-protein amino acids, phenyl propanoids and related compounds, and terpenoids (monoterpenes, sesquiterpenes, sterols, cardiac glycosides and steroid saponins). A chapter is also included covering the importance of secondary metabolites in taxonomy, as viewed from the perspective of moecular systematics. This comprehenive and fully updated new edition, edited by Professor Michael Wink and including contributions from many internationally acknowledged experts in the field, is designed for use by advanced students, researchers and professionals in plant biochemistry, physiology, molecular biology, genetics, agriculture and pharmacy, working in the academic and industrial sectors, including those within the agrochemical and pharmaceutical industries.
