Abstract

The efficacy of six species of Elaeocarpus found in the Western ghats belt of Karnataka namely, E. munronii, E. serratus var. serratus, E. serratus var. wiebelii, E. tuberculatus, E. variabilis and Elaeocarpus sp. (unidentified) was studied for their antimicrobial activity against five clinically important bacterial and four phytofungal pathogens using Disc diffusion method and Poisoned food technique. All the species of Elaeocarpus showed varying degrees of antimicrobial activity in 50% aqueous extracts. Extracts of E. tuberculatus and E. variabilis inhibited all the pathogens except E. coli and R. solani. E. serratus var. serratus and E. serratus var. weibelii were found to be more effective against bacterial pathogens than fungal pathogens. Phytochemical analysis of aqueous leaf extracts of six Elaeocarpus species was also carried out.
