Abstract

The aim of the present study was to find out the antimicrobial activity of crude and phenol extracts obtained from different parts of the sporophytic plant of some selected ethno-medicinal ferns of Arunachal Pradesh, India.Out of which thefern Forsk. showed antibacterial activity against both Gram+( AR-2)and gram
(Escherichia coli XL-1 Blue) bacterial strains. The antimicrobial activity was measured using 'agar cup' method.The extracts from roots revealed better result. Both crude extract and phenol extract showed antibacterial activity. However, the crude extracts were found more effective than phenol extracts.
