Abstract

The biodiversity of Sri Lanka based on the average number of plant species per 10,000 km2 has been stated to be much higher than in any other country in Asia. Despite the diversity and the potential economic value of these plants, many have not been investigated for their natural products. Also both the endemic and non-endemic plants species, which have been investigated chemically and biologically show a wide variety of bioactive compounds indicating the high economic potential of the flora. This paper reviews the studies of bioactve compounds isolated from Sri Lankan flora during the period 1980 to date.
