Terpenoids as Models for New Agrochemicals
Chemistry and Biochemistry
This chapter examines the evidence that some terpenoids serve as plant growth regulators (allelochemicals) as well as anti-herbivore agents. The plant origin and bioassay method of terpenoid allelopathic agents is explored. The role these same compounds play in plant-insect communication due to volatiles, and their involvement as insect pheromones is discussed. The agrochemical possibilities are far-reaching.
