Alkaloids of the plant family Lauraceae are classified according to structure into fifteen groups, and arranged in tabular form. The genera and species in which they occur are also tabulated, and another table summarises the number of occurrences of each alkaloid group by genus. Incompletely characterised bases not included in these tables are listed separately. Occurrences of the main structural types are compared for the Lauraceae and certain other plant families in a further table. The possible mode of biogenesis of some less familiar bases is discussed, and references are given to the biosynthesis of well-known structural types.
