Keywords:Unexplored, Wetland, Anti-Microbial Resistance
The use of plant and plant parts for the treatment of diseases and disorders is oldest practices by human beings. Still in the modern lifestyle, the rural and the tribal community depends on local plants for their primary health care. Among the plant diversity, less documentation has observed on medicinal plants of wetland. Keeping this in view, Eriocaulon quinquangulare was selected for antibacterial activities against selected pathogenic bacteria. The plant parts were collected from Khurda to Puri districts of Odisha state. The collected plant parts were subjected for plant extraction followed by phytochemical screening and antimicrobial activities. The results revealed that the experimental plant rich with diverse phytochemicals observed sound antimicrobial activities. The present work highlights the importance of wetland and unexplored floral wealth.
