The tropical rainforests have become a focus in the search for new drugs from natural sources, especially from plants. This volume aims to promote a better understanding between scientists and institutions located in the developed and developing countries, in their efforts to search for new medicinal agents from the plants of these forests. The papers have been contributed by scientists and researchers from both the developed and developing countries worldwide, and cover issues relevant to biodiversity prospecting activities. Such issues include rules and regulations on the collection of genetic materials for biological testing; logistical and technical challenges to be faced; sharing the benefits of discovery of potentially useful drug candidates; intellectual property rights; and indigenous property rights.
