Report on 1998 Workshop of the Italian Group of Terpenoid Researchers

Over the past few years recognition of the ecological importance of terpenoids has increased enormously. These compounds are the largest group of plant chemicals and terpenoid biosynthesis provides more opportunities to generate new products than other pathways do. Numerous examples have revealed that terpenoids have multiple effects, which contribute to community/ecosystems properties.
