Book Description :
We considered this volume timely in that the last book of this general type, TheFlavonoids — Advances in Research Since 1986 (edited by Jeffrey B. Harborne), appeared over a decade ago. Since then, advances in the flavonoid field have been nothing short of spectacular. These advances are particularly evident in the contributed chapters that cover: the discovery of a variety of new flavonoids; the application of advanced analytical techniques; genetic manipulation of the flavonoid pathway; improved understanding of flavonoid structures and physiological functions in plants and animals; and, perhaps most importantly,the significance of flavonoids to human health.

In recent years there has been an unprecedented expansion of knowledge about anthocyanins pigments. Indeed, the molecular genetic control of anthocyanins biosynthesis is now one of the best understood of all secondary metabolic pathways. There have also been substantial improvements in analytical technology that have led to the discovery of novel anthocyanin compounds. Armed with this knowledge and the tools for genetic engineering, plant breeders are now introducing vibrant new colors into horticultural crops.
