Bryophytes: Their Chemistry & Chemical Taxonomy

Bryophytes: Their Chemistry & Chemical Taxonomy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mosses, liverworts, and hornworts produce a large variety of compounds which exhibit remarkable biological activity. This book provides the first comprehensive survey of the chemistry, biology, and pharmacology of these extraordinary plant groups. Internationally recognized experts give readers valuable information on all aspects of the chemistry of bryophytes, including biochemical, botanical, pharmaceutical, chemotaxonomical, and environmental studies. In addition, synthetic studies of new natural products found in bryophytes are covered.
