Abstract
    A screening of antifouling activity from plants extracts led to selection and further study of Maesa lanceolata Forssk. Two p-benzoquinone compounds were isolated from the fruits and found to be active against Artemia salina. The anti-crustacean activity of both p-benzoquinones is reported for the first time.
