Plants furnish mankind with a wide array of vegetable products - food and feed, medicines, spices, dyes, pesticides, fragrances and stimulants. For many of these products or their synthetic successors, agriculture and phytochemistry have, at some stage, played an important role. This multi-author volume contains the proceedings of an international symposium of phytochemistry and agriculture. The book is divided into three sections dealing with phytochemicals in crop protection; adverse effects nof phytochemicals; and protection of phytochemicals by field crops and tissue culture. Specific topics include: new concepts in crop protection, developments of insecticides and tritrophic interactions; toxic substances in cassava, alfalfa and cattle feed; use and production of tannins, ginkgo biloba extracts, essential oils and fats; developments in plant cell biotechnology; and economics of production processes. The contributions in this book provide a useful introduction to the field and a flavour of current research.
'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)
