`This masterly work is especially good on chemical ecology and medicinal phytochemistry and can be warmly recommended as a valuable reference source.' Phytochemistry, 53 (2000) `In conclusion, David Seigler has produced an outstanding textbook on plant secondary metabolism which should have a place in the library of every botanist, pharmacist, phytochemist, ecologist and biochemist or anybody interested in the application and utilisation of secondary metabolites in ecology, agriculture, biotechnology or medicine.' Journal of Plant Physiology, 157 (2000)
