In the development of Natural Products Chemistry,biogenetic considerations have played an important and useful role. In this article, the author cites examples from his work in the area of Terpene Chemistry to highlight the usefulness of these concepts. To illustrate their application in structure elucidation, an example each from sesquiterpene, diterpene, triterpene and sesterterpene chemistry has been described. Role of these concepts in the search for new structural types, congeners and precursors has been brought out. The usefulness of Absolute Stereochemistry Biogenetic Rule has been pointed out.
