  Aristolochia indica L. (Aristolochiaceae) has long been used in Indian subcontinent in the traditional system of medicine to treat cholera, fever, bowel troubles, ulcers, leprosy, skin diseases, menstrual problems and snakebites. The plant is also used as emmenagogue, abortifacient, antineoplastic, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antipyretic, antifertility and antispermatogenic agent. Aristolochic acid, a major active constituent of the plant is reported to cause cancer, nephropathy, sister chromatid exchange and is a potent abortifacient. The present review deals with the different scientific studies and reports available in different aspects of this plant in the areas of Morpho-taxonomy, Phytochemistry, Pharmacology, Medicoethnobotany, Tissue culture and Chromosomal study.

  Scorpion bite is considered as one of the common and dangerous phenomenon throughout the world. The clinical manifestations include pulmonary edema, myocardial damage, intracerebral haemorrhage, brachial plexopathy, renal failure etc. which sometimes leads to mortality. The common antivenin therapy includes anti-scorpion venom serum or prazosin. In the vast rural areas of the third world countries phytotherapy is considered as an alternative system of medicine and scorpion sting is treated with the help of medicinal botanicals. As the safety and efficacy are considered as important aspects of anti venin therapy, conventional treatment can be supported by the herbal remedy. The present review compiles a number of medicinal plants pharmacologically evaluated in vitro and/or in vivo for scorpion antivenin properties. Considering the aspects like cost effectiveness, availability, lesser side effects and development of drug resistance, plant based anti venin therapy may be considered as a possible remedy against scorpion envenomation.

  Background: Bryophytes, phylogenetically placed between the algae and the vascular plants, are divided into three classes viz. Liverworts, Hornworts and Mosses. This small, slow-growing group of plants is often associated with disturbed habitat, barren rock surface and extreme climatic condition. Traditional system of medicine throughout the world has been utilizing the small group of plants to treat various ailments. Recent pharmacological investigations have proven that the active principles present in the group are quite unique and having tremendous therapeutic potential. Compounds present in bryophytes have been investigated for antiinflamatory, antimicrobial, antioxidant, antivenomous and cytotoxic activity. Bryophytes possess strong antioxidative enzymatic machinery which helps them to cope up with extreme climates and stresses. Results: The present review deals with the literature covering the potential of bryophytes as antioxidative agent, pharmacological investigations of antioxidants and induction of antioxidative system due to different kinds of stress viz. heavy metals, desiccation, radiation, salt etc. A number of antioxidative enzymes were found to be activated due to stress response. Some bryophytes were found to hyperaccumulate metals, some were able to sequester the toxic metal ions. These bryophytes are used as biomonitoring agents. Conclusions: In the present study the authors have found several reports of antioxidative properties found in liverworts and mosses. Herbs have already been used as a potent source of antioxidant in cosmetic and food supplement industry. Bryophytes can serve as a natural source of antioxidants which can be exploited in medicine and cosmetics. Although, the clinical efficacy of the active principles are subjected to further investigation, the therapeutic potential of this small plant group should not be ignored.

  Fungi are associated with a number of plant and human diseases. Plant extracts have been used as efficient fungicides inhibiting the growth of many fungal pathogens. Bryophytes, a small group of lower plants, evolutionarily placed between the algae and the pteridophytes, have been reported to store a number of compounds having antifungal efficacy. This review includes a list of bryophytes investigated against a number of plant and human pathogenic fungi with special reference to the compounds, nature of the compounds, name of the fungi and mode of action on the basis of available information. Bisbibenzyl was found to be the predominant antifungal active principle present in the bryophytes showing efficacy by inhibiting different types of biological activities of the pathogens.
