  Background and Objective: The present study was investigated to aim with the screening of selected medicinal plant to substantiate in vitro antimicrobial activity of methanolic extract of Tamarix aphylla bark against microbial strains and designed to provide scientific evidence for its use as a folk remedy in view of phytochemical constituents. Materials and Methods: Bacterial strains viz. Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella typhi and fungal strains including Aspergillus flavus and Candida albicans were tested using dilutions of 25, 50, 75 and 100 mg mL-1 of the stock solution prepared in dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) via disc diffusion assay. Inhibitory effect of extract in millimeters was determined by measuring the zone of growth inhibition surrounding the discs and compared with the standard drug. Results: Investigation revealed that extract of Tamarix aphylla bark was found to exhibit marked zone of inhibition at higher concentration in most of the bacterial and fungal strains examined. Conclusion: The present study suggests the presence of great potential of bioactive and phytochemical compounds rationalizing the use of this plant in primary health care.
