"This volume forms part of the continuing excellent series of 'Recent Advances in Phytochemistry' derived from the proceedings of the Phytochemical Society of North America. The editor has done a good job of assembling the volume which will form a useful review of the state-of-play in our understanding of the secondary metabolism of these five model organisms. In particular the volume collectively identifies key emerging issues in phytochemistry. As such it is a very useful read for researchers and advanced level teachers of phytochemistry who may still be sceptical about the value of model organisms in studying metabolic diversity and is a useful point of reference for future studies in other crops and medicinal plants."
