These activities stimulated the regeneration of plant species as well as the growth of invasive alien plants like Mikania

glomerata Spreng.) with Antibacterial and Antagonistic Activity Against Phytopathogens.
micrantha is an extremely fast growing perennial creeping weed.
These drugs are obtained from the espinheira-santa (Maytenus officinalis), guaco (Mikania
glomerata), artichoke (Cynara scolymus), sacred shell (Rhamnus purshiana), aroeira (Schinus terebenthifolius), devil's claw (Harpagophytum procumbens), soy isoflavone (Glycine max) and cat's claw (Uncaria tomentosa).
