9780198577621: Phytochemistry and Agriculture

Plants provide humans with a wide array of products, in the development of which agriculture and phytochemistry have played an important role. This book emphasizes this importance by examining the many areas in which phytochemistry is valuable. Three specific areas are: crop protection, adverse effects of phytochemicals, and the production of phytochemicals by field crops and tissue culture. By providing a thorough and in-depth look at a wide range of issues and questions in these areas, the book provides a valuable introduction to this field and an up-to-date synthesis of current research.

Recensione:

'a useful addition to an Institute or University library with an active interest in agricultural biotechnology and phytochemistry ... the standard of writing is good' Denis J. Murphy, Agricultural Science, Volume 123 - 1994

The subject matter of the book is very wide-ranging ... a useful addition to an Institute or University library with an active interest in agricultural biotechnology and phytochemistry. ( Denis J. Murphy, Journal of Agricultural Science)

This book is generally well produced ... Most of the contributions are of sufficiently wide interest to make this volume a worthwhile addition to a plant sciences library ( M.G. Jones, Annals of Botany 74, 1994)

Although the conference was held some time ago, the contents of the proceedings are still to a large extent up-to-date. I can thoroughly recommend the volume to agronomists, phytochemists, biologists, pharmacists, and any other scientists interested in the phytochemical aspects of agriculture. ( R.J. Grayer, Journal of Experimental Botany, Vol. 46, No, 282, January 1995)

The chapters were written by outstanding scientists. An introduction provides a review on the whole topic. Each chapter contains a reference list. A genus and species index complement the book. The chapters are written clearly and precisely. The book can be recommended for all those concerned with and interested in agriculture and phytochemistry. ( H.R. Schütte, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 147 (1995))
