This book focuses on phytonutrients, specifically, the highly oxygenated triterpenoids called limonoids that occur primarily in the genus ^ICitra^R and other closely related genera. It reviews the history of chemical research on limonoids and discusses their biological benefits, including cancer prevention in humans and antifeedant activity in agricultural pests.
