Bauhinia monandra

Pacific Islands Ecosystems at Risk. Stamens one, filament glabrousabout mm long.

However, it does best in areas that receive about to mm of rainfall annually and that have moist, well-drained soils with pH ranging from 6. Nat Prod Chem Res 3: The antimicrobial activity of EFBM may be due to the presence of phytochemicals such as phenols, flavonoids, alkaloids, terpenoids which are naturally biosynthesised in this plant and serve as defense mechanism against any pathogenic microorganisms [ 21 ].

The total percentage concentration of the fatty acids in HFBM was bauhinoa It can be deduced that EFBM has broadest spectrum of activity on the tested bacteria. The results of the present studies support the folkloric usage of the leaf of studied plant and suggest that EFBM possesses compounds with antioxidant and antimicrobial properties that can be further explored for in vivo and clinical studies monandea as to justify its antioxidant and antimicrobial activities. The antioxidant and antibacterial activities had been attributed to the mohandra of some bioactive constituents in the EFBM.


The suspension was swabbed bajhinia the surface of the prepared MHA plates. Midrib extending beyond the leaf blade as an aristate tip 2 mm or more long. Anther about mm long. Sheldon Navie bark of main trunk Photo: However, these species can be distinguished by their leaves having two separate leaflets, instead of being two-lobed.

Curepe, Trinidad and Tobago: Antioxidants from plant extract are compounds that demonstrated biological activity which can protect the body from damage caused by free radical-induced bahhinia stress [ 1 ]. Bauhinia monandra leaf is a rich source of phytochemicals with proven antioxidant and antimicrobial activities. A brown ring of the interface indicates the presence of deoxysugar characteristic of cardenolides.

The monandrz concentration of the isolated component is indicated by the heights of the peaks. Seeds flat, about x mm, about per pod.

Stipules pubescentabout 0. Emergence, detection, and response. In the past the origin of this species was unknown, and it has erroneously been described as originating from south-eastern Asia e. The results show that its activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa was significantly higher than E scherichia coli, and klebsiela oxytoca. A weed monadnra drier sites with relatively poor soils and has also been observed to grow on river levees and in dense riparian vegetation i.

These changes contribute to cancer, atherosclerosiscardiovascular diseases ageing and inflammatory diseases [ 23 ]. Sheldon Navie young plants Photo: The older bahinia are covered with a smooth grey coloured bark.

Revista Mexicana de Biodiversidad, 80 2: In the Dominican Republic this species is also listed as invasive Kairo et al. The filtrate brown was taken in a separating funnel and ethylacetate mL was added. These leaves have hairless i. This was under layered with 1 ml of concentrated tetraoxosulphate VI acid.

Space JC, Flynn T, a. Title Seedling Caption Bauhinia monandra Napoleon’s plume ; seedling. Thus the presence of these phytochemicals in leaf of B. Inflorescence a terminal few-flowered raceme. Title Leaves Caption Bauhinia monandra Napoleon’s plume ; leaves, seedpods and flowers.

monajdra Its flowers vary from entirely white to various shades of pink or purple with darker pink or reddish-purple markings and have five fertile stamens. Fratres Borntraeger, pp Urban I, In contrast to this, HFBM showed negligible or zero activity against all the bacteria strains.
