Abstract: In this study an attempt was made to assess the antibacterial potential of three medicinal plants used by tribals in Maruthamalai hills, Coimbatore District, Tamil Nadu. Antibacterial activity of 35 extracts at three different concentrations of various plant parts of Strychnos nux-vomica Linn.,  Pergularia daemia R. Br. and Toddalia asiatica var. floribunda Lam. collected from Maruthamalai hills, in Western Ghats was evaluated against certain bacterial pathogens such as Aeromonas hydrophila, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella typhi. All the extracts exhibited tested antibacterial activity at higher concentrations.
