Cytotoxic natural products isolated from Formosan plants and marine organisms till December, 2002, by local scientists or Taiwanese researchers have been reviewed. A total of about 200 compounds belonging to six types of chemical structures are listed or/and described in this article. Several compounds with special or selective activity have been described in more details. Some structure-activity relationships for the compounds of the same skeleton are drawn to clarify the possible pharmacophores.
