Proceedings of the August 1995 symposium. The 12 papers include a demonstration of how bioactivity of terpenoids and phenolics span not only families, but kingdoms; examples of multiplicity of function from butterfly/glucosinolate studies and from alkaloids in endophytic gases; a discussion of compounds from the neem tree, emphasizing the importance of nontoxic compounds which can enhance toxicity; and a long-term study of the unique pine/sawfly interaction, which demonstrates that interactions mediated by chemicals are never simple.
