London ; Orlando: Academic Press, (OCoLC) Merriam-Webster defines chemotaxonomy as the method of biological classification based on similarities in the structure of certain compounds among the organisms being classified. Advocates argue that, as proteins are more closely controlled by genes and less subjected to natural selection than the anatomical features, they are more reliable indicators of genetic .

Chemotaxonomy, also called chemosystematics, is the attempt to classify and identify organisms (originally plants) according to confirmable differences and similarities in their biochemical compositions. Chemotaxonomy-based plant selection is a prerequisite for the successful natural product research.

It is, of course, possible that further research may show them to be of much wider distribution in flowering plants, and they may then become of chemotaxonomic importance. Considered as a modern approach, the chemotaxonomy, also known as chemosystematics, classifies the plant on the basis of their chemical composition (Singh ).

Its. The concept of chemotaxonomy was elaborated on in by De Candolle: 1. Plant taxonomy will be the most useful guide to man in his search for new industrial and medicinal plants; and.

Chemical characteristics of plants will be most valuable to plant. The purpose of this book is to assess the potential of phytochemical and molecular tools in the systematic and classification of plants. The topics covered include species concept, barcoding and phylogenetic analysis, chemotaxonomy use of polyketides, carotenes, cuticular wax, volatile oils, biodiversity of corals, metazoans, Ruta and Echinocereus.

The book continues with discussions on the theoretical and practical aspects of the ""species"" concepts and an outline of the history of chemical taxonomy.

The selection also looks at the qualities of chemotaxonomy, the usefulness of chemistry in plant taxonomy, biosynthetic pathways, and the factors affecting the production of secondary plant.

The topics covered include species concept, barcoding and phylogenetic analysis, chemotaxonomy use of polyketides, carotenes, cuticular wax, volatile oils, biodiversity of corals. The concept of chemotaxonomy has been elaborated in the past century[4].

According to De Candolle[4]. 1) Plant taxonomy will be the most useful guide to man in his search for new industrial and medicinal plants; and 2) Chemical characteristics of plants will be most valuable to plant taxonomy in the future.

The chemotaxonomy of plants. [Philip M Smith] -- Taxonomy is the theory and practice of classification, and chemotaxonomy incorporates the principles and procedures involved in the use of chemical evidence for classificatory purposes.

Chemical. Introduction Chemotaxonomy is an attempt to classify plants on basis of their chemical constituents. When properly applied, it is undoubtedly more useful than much subjective morphology (e.g. leaf shape).

Chemotaxonomy incorporates the principles & procedures involved in the use of chemical evidence for classificatory purpose.

Secondary plant products are largely waste substances, food stores, pigments, poisons, scents, structural units or water repellents, etc. The most well-known groups of secondary metabolites are phenolic compounds, alkaloids, glucosinolates, amino acids, terpenoids, oils.

The topics covered include species concept, barcoding and phylogenetic analysis, chemotaxonomy use of polyketides, carotenes, cuticular wax, volatile oils, biodiversity of corals, metazoans, Ruta and Echinocereus. The book is amply illustrated with examples. Some of the important chapters in Part I comprise Different Classifications, Nomenclature, Biosystematics, Modern Trends in Taxonomy, Chemotaxonomy, Numerical Taxonomy etc.

Part II deals with about families of which 55 are discussed in detail and summarized accounts of the rest are given for 1/5(4). Lastly, the chemotaxonomy at the genus and family levels is described and detailed.

In this review article, the phytochemistry of the species belonging to the Araucariaceae family is explored.

Among these, in particular, it is given a wide overview on the phytochemical profile of Wollemia genus, for the first time. • Restricted to certain taxa • They are the valuable characters for plant classification • The classification of plants on the basis of chemical contents is called chemotaxonomy or chemical taxonomy 3.
