The Physiology of Phenolic Compounds in Plants

  • Jerry W. McClure
Part of the Recent Advances in Phytochemistry book series (RAPT, volume 12)


An Oriental fable tells of six blind men who found an elephant and did not know what it was. They described it as resembling a wall, a spear, a snake, a tree, a fan, or a rope; depending on which part each had touched. Each believed he knew just how the animal looked; and each called the others hard names because they did not agree with him. One finds similarly diverse opinions of how certain treatments, or environmental situations, influence phenolic enzymes or phenolic accumulations76, 112.
