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.
