Introduction: Anthrax is a zoonotic disease caused by the soil bacterium Bacillus anthracis. It has an extremely high mortality rate if untreated. Terminalia spp. have a long association with the treatment of various ailments, including bacterial infections although they have not been tested for the ability to inhibit the growth of B. anthracis. Methods: Solvent extracts were prepared using Terminalia spp. known to inhibit microorganism growth. The antibacterial potential of the extracts were…
