Introduction to ecological biochemistry by J. B Harborne( Book )

94 editions published between 1977 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 2,168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ecological biochemistry concerns the biochemistry of interactions between animals, plants and the environment, and includes such diverse subjects as plant adaptations to soil pollutants and the effects of plant toxins on herbivores. The intriguing dependence of the Monarch butterfly on its host plants is chosen as an example of plant-animal coevolution in action. The ability to isolate trace amounts of a substance from plant tissues has led to a wealth of new research, and the fourth edition of this well-known text has consequently been extensively revised. New sections have been provided on the cost of chemical defence and on the release of predator-attracting volatiles from plants. New information has been included on cyanogenesis, the protective role of tannins in plants and the phenomenon of induced defence in plant leaves following herbivory. Advanced level students and research workers aloke will find much of value in this comprehensive text, written by an acknowledged expert on this fascinating subject. Annotation Published: July 2008

Phytochemical dictionary : a handbook of bioactive compounds from plants by J. B Harborne( Book )

34 editions published between 1993 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Avast array of natural organic compounds, the products of primary and secondary metabolism, occur in plants. The purpose of this dictionary is to provide basic information, including structural formulae, on the most widely encountered plant constituents, with emphasis on those which are biologically active. The Phytochemical Dictionary covers over 3000 substances from phenolics and alkaloids through carbohydrates and plant glycosides to essential oils and triterpenoids. It also provides an entry into the phytochemical literature on those occasions when more detailed information is required." "Constituents which are listed in the Phytochemical Dictionary include: flavour substances, plant volatiles, insect antifeedants, natural sweeteners, plant poisons, carcinogens, colouring matters, oestrogenic agents, mycotoxins, natural hallucinogens, phytoalexins and allelochemicals. For each substance, information is provided on: trivial name, synonyms, structural type, chemical structure (showing stereochemistry), molecular weight and formula, natural occurrence, biological activity and commercial or other use. Key references to books and review articles are provided for each class and subclass." "The Phytochemical Dictionary will be an essential reference source for those working in the field of plant science, and will be of specific interest to phytochemists, food chemists, flavour and perfumery chemists, agricultural and horticultural chemists, pharmacologists, pharmacognostics, and plant biologists."--Jacket

The Flavonoids by J. B Harborne( Book )

23 editions published between 1975 and 1994 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Almost 80 years after the Scopes trial, the debate over the teaching of evolution continues. There is no easy resolution--it is a complex topic with profound scientific, religious, educational, and legal implications. [This book] provides an introduction to the many facets of the current debate--the scientific evidence for evolution, the legal and educational basis for its teaching, the various religious points of view--as well as a concise history of the evolution-creationism controversy. [This book first] addresses the nature of how evolution works as part of the scientific enterprise, as well as a summary of the relationship between religious beliefs and science. A section on the history of the evolution versus creationism controversy provides a handy synopsis of the lengthy struggles, from before Darwin to the present day, between advocates of creationism and the proponents of evolution. [Next the book provides] a collection of primary source documents, addressing cosmology, law, education, and religious issues from all sides of the debate.-Back cover

The Flavonoids : advances in research since 1980( Book )

9 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major purpose ofthis third volume in The Flavonoidsseries is to provide a detailed review of progress in the field during the five years, 1981-1985 inclusive. It thus continues the comprehensive coverage of the literature on these fascinating and important plant pigments which began in 1975 with the publication of The Flavonoids and which was followed in 1982 with The Flavonoids: Advances in Research. As with the two previous vo1umes, this one is entire1y se1f-contained and where necessary tabu1ar data and references from earlier vo1umes are included and expanded here. A unique feature is the complete listing in the Appendix ofall known flavonoids, which now number over 4000 structures; in this list, structures newly reported during the period 1981-1985 are so indicated. The first ten chaptersofthis book provide a critical review ofthe new substancesthat have been discovered among each of the main classes of flavonoid during the period under review. Again, the numberofnew isoflavonoids reported outweighs that ofother classesand ahundred pagesare needed to describe all the nove1 findings. Neoflavonoids, which were omitted in the first supplement, have been included again and a special chapter on miscellaneous flavonoids has been introduced to cope with those structures (e.g. homoisoflavonoids) which do not fit in easily anywhere else. Although there have been advances in flavonoid methodology, these have not been asspectacular as in earlier years. Hence, literature reports on new chromatographic and spectral procedures are included here in the individual chapters under the different flavonoid classes
