It is necessary to obtain permission through formal written agreements to acquire the plants for this project. Nonpolar and polar extracts are then prepared of each plant part obtained, which are then evaluated in a broad range of cell- and mechanism-based in vitro bioassays. Cell-based assays are used to evaluate the cytotoxic potential of extracts against the growth of human tumor cells in culture, and the mechanism-based assays constitute a variety of enzyme inhibition and receptor-binding assays germane to cancer.

9% of the families had all of their genera sampled. It is impossible to identify accurately the precise number of taxa sampled in tropical Africa and Madagascar because of incomplete identification of collections at the species level. However, in both regions a low percentage of species have been sampled more than once. As the number of samples made each time a taxon was encountered and sampled has averaged slightly above three, the maximum number of species collected in tropical Africa would be only about 3000 and probably only slightly more than 1000 species have been sampled in Madagascar.
