Plants provide a remarkable diversity of useful products such as food, medicines, spices, pesticides, fragrances, and stimulants. For many of these products or their synthetic successors, agriculture and phytochemistry have been critical to their development. The volume brings together noted authorities on the subject to discuss three topics broadly related to phytochemistry and agriculture: phytochemicals in crop production, adverse effects of phytochemicals, and production of phytochemicals by field crops and tissue culture. Specific topics include new concepts in crop protection, development of insecticides and tritrophic interactions, toxic substances, and the use and production of tannins, Ginkgo biloba extracts, essential oils, and fats. This book will be welcomed by students and researchers of phytochemistry, plant physiology, biochemistry, and agronomy.

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. Schutte, Journal of Plant Physiology, Vol. 147 (1995) * 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 * 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 * 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 * '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
