Indole compounds and their biochemistry have been attracting increasing attention in recent years. Application of new techniques has not only detected many more indoles in nature, but more importantly, the hormonal nature of some of these compounds has been widely established in both plants and animals. On these grounds alone, it is timely to consider the present status of higher plant indoles and their biochemistry.
