The natural products chemistry ofAcanthus ilicifolius (Acanthaceae), the mangrove holly, has received considerable attention due to its large range of secondary metabolites and its usage in ethnopharmacol-ogy. This review combines the available data on natural products inA. ilicifolius and provides additional information on an East Sumatra specimen. The observed variability for some compound classes suggests an influence of habitat conditions on secondary metabolite inventories.
