Marine Natural Products: Chemical and Biological Perspectives, Volume I, reviews the state of knowledge in the chemistry and biology of marine natural products. It brings together critical reviews and new perspectives for the marine research community. The book's opening chapter discusses the isolation, distribution, chemistry, pharmacology, and public health aspects of dinoflagellate toxins. This is followed by separate chapters on algal nonisoprenoids, algal sesquiterpenoids, terpenoids from marine sponges, and uncommon marine steroids.
