The changing strategies for preservation and sustainable of diversity in Brazil in the past few years evidences the intrinsic value this enormous biological resource of potentially new bioactive compounds, and represents one of the greatest challenges nowadays facing the accelerated process of devastation of several Brazilian biomes. The systematic bioactivity evaluation of crude extracts and pure compounds from São Paulo state biota associated with additional information on chromatographic profile, spectrometric data and/or biological activity shall result in value-added material, which will be available for further studies. The might converge to hits or lead compounds to pharmaceutical, agroceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetics industry, which is expected to bring great contribution for conservation and sustainable economic development from the biodiversity of São Paulo state.
