Dear Readers and Authors,
I am pleased to bring you volume 9, issue 1 of Pharmacognosy ommunications. In this issue we present new research reports examining the pharmacognosy of several important medicinal plants including the antibacterial activity of Melodorum leichhardtii (F.Muell.) Benth. extracts against the growth of Klebsiella pneumoniae; the potential of Brachychiton rupestris (T.Mitch. ex Lindl.) K.Schum. extracts to inhibit the growth of Streptococcus pyogenes and thereby inhibit the induction of rheumatic fever, pharyngitis and impetigo. We also include a pharmacognostic standardisation study into the important Auyverdic plant Prosopis cinceraria. We also present a study examining the antibacterial, anti-giardial and anticancer properties of Buchanania obovata Engl. fruit extracts.Read more. . .
