Abstract: Antimicrobial activity of extracts of aerial parts of the plant samples of Aconitum heterophyllum Wall. ex Royle was evaluated against different bacterial and fungal strains. It was observed that methanolic extract (50 mg/well) was the most potent extract which showed significant inhibition of the growth of Gram positive bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis. Antifungal activity was shown by two extracts against Candida albicans and Aspergillus flavus. Methanolic extract showed considerable antifungal activity while feeble antifungal activity was obtained with ethyl acetate extract even at higher concentrations.
