Cyclic peptides comprise a class of naturally occurring molecules, which exhibit a range of biological activities, and have attracted great interest from a biogenetic point of view as well as providing challenging targets for total synthesis. This review covered the structure elucidation and biological activity of cyclic peptides recently isolated from higher plants such as Amaranthaceae, Annonaceae, Caryophyllaceae, Compositae, Linaceae, Rutaceae, and Rubiaceae.
