Abstract

The aim of the study was to determine the antibacterial and antifungal activities of the methanolic extract of Conocarpus lancifolius Engl. aerial parts using disk diffusion method. The bacteria tested included Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus cereus, Proteus mirabilis and Klebsella pneumonia whereas the fungal strains tested included Aspergillus flavus, Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisae. Antibacterial activity was found to be present in four species being highest in K. pneumonia (11mm). Zones of inhibition for B. cereus, E. coli and P. aeruginosa were 9, 8 and 8 respectively. Antifungal activity was found only in S. cerevisae where the zone was recorded to be 7mm. Results show plants to possess antibacterial and antifungal activities.
