ABSTRACT
The present study was carried out to investigate the antimicrobial property of methanolic extract of Ervatamia coronaria Stapf., leaves (MEEC), by agar disc diffusion method. Three gram negative and three gram positive bacteria and two fungal strains were used for the present study. The MEEC concentration ranging between 100-1000μg/ml showed inhibitory activity against all the tested bacteria. The extract also showed significant antifungal activity against the tested strains. All the tested microorganisms showed dose dependent susceptibility towards the methanolic extract of Ervatamia coronaria. Based on the present findings it may be concluded that the methanolic extract of Ervatamia coronaria possess potent antimicrobial activity.
