As part of an investigation of the biological activities of South African plants and due to their extensive traditional use and lack of scientific evidence, a phytochemical and pharmacological investigation was performed on 17 indigenous Agathosma species (19 samples). The chemical composition of the essential oils was determined using gas chromatography coupled to mass spectroscopy (GC-MS). Analysis resulted in the identification of 333 compounds. To evaluate the chemical similarities and… 

Bioprospecting of South African Plants as a Unique Resource for Bioactive Endophytic Microbes

The insights provided through this study indicate that medicinal plants in South Africa are highly under-investigated sources of potentially useful endophytic microbes, and new approaches may be used by medicinal plant scientists for further exploration of natural products fromendophytic fungi and bacteria in southern Africa.

Buchu (Agathosma betulina and A. crenulata): Rightfully Forgotten or Underutilized?

Today, the term buchu refers to the two species in commerce, Agathosma betulina (P.J.Bergius) Pillans and Agathosma crenulata (L.) Pillans (Rutaceae). Its traditional use in urinary tract infections
