Research Impacts:

  • Researches on Marine Plants Utilization greatly impact on the coastal communities of the Philippines. Recording the traditional use of marine Plants and animals can be linked to improved studies for medical use of marine resources and development of drugs for medical, pharmaceutical and nutritional products. Utilization of Marine Resources can help alleviate poverty.
