This monograph series is commissioned by the Phytochemical Society of North America (PSNA). The volumes in this series contain articles on developing topics of interest to scientists, students and individuals interested in recent developments in the biochemistry, chemistry and molecular biology of plants. Volume 37 concentrates on the integration of techniques to solve complex phytochemistry problems.

Key Features

This volume describes the combination of multiple techniques to solve complex plant science problems.

The chapters investigate What, Why and How secondary metabolites are formed.

Volume 37 covers a wide range of phytochemistry topics from Ethnobotany to Molecular ecology.


for scientists interested in the application of plant chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, chemical ecology, genomics and enzymology techniques for the investigation of complex phytochemical problems.
