Not since the late 1970s has a single work presented the biology of this heterogenous group of secondary alkaloids in such depth. Alkaloids, a unique treatise featuring leaders in the field, presents both the historical use of alkaloids and the latest discoveries in
  • the biochemistry of alkaloid production in plants
  • alkaloid ecology, including marine invertebrates, animal and plant parasites, and
  • alkaloids as antimicrobial and current medicinal use
. Highlights include chapters on the chemical ecology of alkaloids in host-predator interactions, and on the compartmentation of alkaloids synthesis, transport, and storage. Extensive cross-referencing in tabular format makes this volume an excellent reference.
