Cryptic but some potential Insecticidal Plants of India
Plants have evolved a wide variety of chemical compounds which are known as secondary metabolites for protecting themselves against insect herbivory. These chemicals have evolved as a result of long period of coevolution which has taken place between the plants and the insect over a period of centuries. Plant based insecticides are safe for use and hence have been researched to develop insecticides for commercial utilization. The paper gives detailed information of sevenless known insecticidal plants of India.
