Contributions of Jeffrey Harborne and co-workers to the study of anthocyanins.

Author information

  • 1Department of Biology, Boston University, MA 02215, USA.


Jeffrey Harborne and his co-workers have played a unique role in the over-all study of plant pigments and of anthocyanins in particular through their many publications and through Jeffrey's editorial work with Phytochemistry. Jeffrey has made important contributions to our understanding of the separation and structural identification of anthocyanins; to co-pigmentation; and to the role of anthocyanins in systematics and ecology in both reproductive and vegetative tissues. This work has had considerable influence on much of the current research on the genetics and regulation of anthocyanin biosynthesis.
