9780123468017: The Biology and Chemistry of Compositae: v. 1

The Compositae is the largest family of flowering plants, which contains a number of economically important species and from which many valuable plant products have been obtained. However no overall resume has been attempted until now because of its complexity. The contributors to this book, all of whom have carried out significant research on the group in recent years, have presented their findings in a form which provides the first fully comprehensive survey of both the systematics (complete at the generic level) and comparative biochemistry of the Compositae. Not only is each tribe given detailed individual consideration, but in addition there is a unique collection of general reviews on the biology and chemistry of the Family as a whole. These two volumes (published under separate ISBNs) will prove an invaluable source of reference to systematists, chemotaxonomists, plant biochemists, agronomists, pharmacognosists and botanists in general. --- Contents: 1. An Overture to the Compositae 2. Fossil History and Geography 3. Aspects of Diversification in the Capitulum 4. Evolution of Capitulum Types of the Compositae in the Light of Insect-Flower Interaction 5. Developmental and Comparative Anatomy 6.
