Abstract:

Punctelia subrudecta (Nyl.) Krog is common foliose lichen collected from different locations of Nainital. In this study antifungal activity of methanol and acetone extracts of P. subrudecta beside of five plant pathogen fungi like Aspergillus niger, Alternaria alternata, Fusarium solani, Albugo candida and Penicillium citrinum  has been selected for the study. The acetone extract were found more effective followed by the methanol extracts. The results indicate that the activity of lichen extract vary with the type of solvent used. P. subrudecta separates show an expansive range action against the tried plant pathogenic growths and could be of huge use as a potential antifungal.
