Author(s): Preet Amol Singh, Sapna D. Desai, Jasbir Singh*.




Graphical Abstract:



As per WHO reports, about three-quarters (65-80%) of the world’s population seek plants or plant-derived natural products for various diseases. The slow discovery of new synthetic molecules and rising resistance in microbes against existing ones has triggered an alarm for speeding up the development process for new molecules. Traditional system(s) of medicine and plant resources has been foresighted again by researchers to circumvent the situation. This review represents various plant genera which, either as a whole plant or their parts, have been reported possessing antimicrobial properties during the last decade. Before 2007, literature is already well cited in various books and reviews.
