Antimicrobial activity and phenolic content of natural site and micropropagated Limonium avei (De Not.) Brullo & Erben plant extracts
The samples showed a comparable antimicrobial activity, although the natural site extract possessed the lower MIC values, and a low activity was found on Gram-negative bacteria and Candida albicans.
