  • Abstract

    Knowledge on plants by the Indigenous people provides an insight to the researchers to screen traditionally used plants for active principles against various human pathogens. Antibacterial study on Croton sparsiflorus fresh leaf and fresh fruit extracts obtained using petroleum ether showed more medicinal value on Staphylococcus aureus and less on Serratia marcescens. In general, Gram-positive bacteria were more susceptible than Gram-negative bacteria. Leaf extract had profound killing effects on bacteria.
