Hardbound. Volume 8 summarizes the chemistry of various biofunctional molecules and bioactive natural products of both terrestrial and marine origin. In accord with the recent trend of research in this area, ecological significance of bioactive natural products is emphasized throughout the volume. A short introductory chapter describes the progress in this field in general and stresses the importance of chirality in natural products chemistry. Chemistry of plant hormones is treated in depth in Chapter 2, covering the auxins, gibberellins, cytokinins, abscisic acid, ethylene, brassinosteroids and jasmonic acid. Chapter 3 on plant chemical ecology includes plant-animal interactions, plant-plant interactions and plant-microbe interactons. Chapter 4 on insect pheromones, kairomones and allomones is structured according to the carbon skeleton of each compound, considering its biogenetic pathways. Chapter 5 describes insect hormones (juvenile hormones, moultin
