Although the land area of Taiwan is not spacious, it possesses extraordinarily abundant biodiversity resources and many endemic species. For instance, there are ca. 4000 vascular plant native species in Taiwan, and among them, 1067 species are only distributed in Taiwan. To properly manage and wisely utilize these resources are important task to prosper the economy and sustain the conservation of ecosystem. The College of Agriculture, National Pingtung University of Science and Technology (NPUST) located in south Taiwan and aims to integrate the theories and practices of developing tropical agriculture. The inventory of abundant plant resources were made in forest and wetland ecosystem. Ethnobotanical plants were investigated through community cooperation and developing of ecotourism. The new function and efficacy of special crops and medicinal herbs were studied through active component analyses. The Center for Active Natural Products Development (CANPD) was established in 2004 and collaborated with the faculty of food science, life science, aquaculture, animal science, plant industry, veterinary medicine and the Biotechnology Institute. It is a comprehensive research center for bioactive natural products research and development. The cooperative research program is a model for interaction between industry, government and academia to address research needs related to natural product quality, safety and healthfulness.
