ABSTRACT
For thousands of years, mankind has been using natural substances for medical purposes. Common drugs originally came from tree barks, molds, and flowers. Scientists continue to research medical practices of primitive peoples, searching for "witch doctor" medications that can be adapted to the modern world. The number of drugs being derived from sources on land continues to decrease, however. The World Ocean represents mankind's new drugstore. The single largest geographic feature on the planet, less than 5 percent of it has been explored. It is here, however, that most of the living things on the planet reside. It is reasonable to expect that bioactive marine compounds of great diversity and utility will be found here.
