|Abstract:||Aqueous and alcoholic extracts of plant parts of Athyrium pectinatum (Wall.) Presl. were tested against the growth of some human and plant pathogenic bacteria like, Agrobacterium tumefaciens, Escherichia coli, Salmonella arizonae, Salmonella typhi and Staphylococcus aureus. Nearly all the extracts were found effective against these bacteria. The positive results so obtained were compared with that of the reference standard antibiotic (Tetracycline). It was found that extracts when mixed in equal proportion with the antibiotic were more effective against bacteria than the antibiotic alone.|
