The chemistry and biological activity of the Hyacinthaceae.
TLDR
The phytochemical profiles of 38 genera of the Hyacinthaceae will be discussed as well as any biological activity associated with both crude extracts and compounds isolated, and the current contribution considers the family at a global level.
Hitting the right target: taxonomic challenges for, and of, plant invasions
TLDR
Modern taxonomy needs to integrate both classical and new concepts and approaches to improve the accuracy of species identification and further refine taxonomic classification at the level of populations and genotypes in the field and laboratory.
In vitro anti-plasmodial activity of Dicoma anomala subsp. gerrardii (Asteraceae): identification of its main active constituent, structure-activity relationship studies and gene expression profiling
TLDR
The novel mode of action of dehydrobrachylaenolide, detected during these studies, will play an ongoing role in advancing anti-plasmodial drug discovery efforts.
South Africa's bioprospecting, access and benefit-sharing legislation: current realities, future complications, and a proposed alternative
TLDR
It is claimed that non-facilitative regulations have placed a dead hand on value-addition to South Africa's biodiversity and an alternative, practical, CBD-com- pliant model on which to base urgently required legislative reforms is presented.
