Flavonoids represent a large class of secondary plant metabolites, of which anthocyanins are the most conspicuous class, dueto the wide range of colors resulting from their synthesis. Anthocyanins are important to many diverse functions within plants. Synthesis of anthocyanins in petals is undoubtedly intended to attract pollinators, whereas anthocyanin synthesis in seeds and fruits may aid in seed dispersal. Anthocyanins and other flavonoids can also be important as feeding deterrents and as… CONTINUE READING
