Others are used in the industry e g rubber tannins and cellulose this book treats the organization and significance of biosynthesis storage transformation and degradation of the most important groups of secondary pro ducts in microorgimisms plants arid animals. Plant metabolites that color the plant are a good example of this as the coloring of a plant can attract pollinators and also defend against attack by animals types of secondary metabolites in plants there is no fixed commonly agreed upon system for classifying secondary metabolites. Animals that are able to make use of plant secondary metabolites would be better suited to survive and spread the genes that allow for the benefits gained this can be viewed as creating a genetic arms race in which plants and fungi evolve secondary metabolites to interfere with animal predators that are successfully exploiting plant compounds. Secondary metabolites may also inhibit the growth of competitor plants allelopathy pigments such as terpenoid carotenes phenolics and flavonoids color flowers and together with terpene and phenolic odors attract pollinators secondary chemicals are important in plant use by humans. Secondary metabolites of plants and their role overview fungi and plants but absent in animals plant secondary metabolism is an economically important source of fine chemicals such as
