This manuscript describes the evaluation of anti-infective potential in vitro of organic extracts from nine sponges, one ascidian, two octocorals, one bryozoan, and 27 seaweed species collected along the Brazilian coast. Antimicrobial activity was tested against Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 25923), Enterococcus faecalis (ATCC 29212), Pseudomonas aeruginosa(More)
The Southwestern Atlantic harbors unique and relatively understudied reef systems, including the only atoll in South Atlantic: Rocas atoll. Located 230 km off the NE Brazilian coast, Rocas is formed by coralline red algae and vermetid mollusks, and is potentially one of the most "pristine" areas in Southwestern Atlantic. We provide the first comprehensive(More)
Many types of macroalgae contain a wide range of bioactive compounds that have antioxidant potential. However, in contrast to terrestrial plants, only a few studies have reported the antioxidant activity of seaweeds. Therefore, extracts from 26 marine macroalgae species from the south and southeast coasts of Brazil were evaluated for their antioxidant(More)
The assessment of human impacts on marine ecosystems is usually done by assessing changes in species diversity and abundance. Here, we add to this approach the assessment of primary and secondary metabolites from macroalgal communities in urban and protected areas in south Brazil and investigate whether the chemical diversity of marine macroalgae is(More)
