The present study explains antifungal activity of crude extracts of stem-bark of Acacia ampliceps Maslin (Family Leguminosae). Two different extracts of the stem-bark of this plant were used against four fungal strains. It was revealed that methanol extract was comparatively inhibitorier to all fungal strains than ethanol. Methanol extract showed significant inhibition against Trichoderma spp., fair inhibition against Rhizopus and Acremonium spp. and less activity against Aspergillus niger. However, ethanol extract showed comparatively high activity against Trichoderma spp. while the remaining three fungal strains were comparatively resistant to it. Maximum zone of inhibition was recorded to be 22 mm by methanol extract at 1000 µg/mL against Trichoderma spp.
