"The volume is presented with the now characteristic quality for which the series is known, although quite naturally the style and organization of each of the chapters has its own unique formatting characteristics. There is a good mix of chemistry, structure elucidation, synthesis, and biology in the various chapters, thereby appealing to a diverse readership. The diagrams are clear and the writing excellent. In summary, this is another excellent volume in a very valuable series on natural products for which Professor Atta-ur-Rahman is to be congratulated. However, the volume should be an important and essential asset for those libraries supporting the efforts of natural product research groups." --Geoffrey A. Cordell, University of Illinois, Chicago, USA, PHYTOCHEMISTRY, Vol.65, 2004
