Biological Activities of Essential Oils

In the modern sustainable industries, the “green products”, based on natural compounds, are of a highest importance. From this standpoint, essential oils are considered the most widely used natural products in many areas. Most of them have been used as fragrance, flavoring agents or as medicines since ancient times. Nowadays, a renaissance of the research on essential oils in the traditional, but also new industries, is observed. The essential oils are extensively studied to treat various human ailments, but also for crop protection, as so-called botanical pesticides. This conference aims to give an overview of the modern biological applications and activities of essential oils. Also, their phytochemistry and ecophysiological significances will be discussed.
