Analysing the multidrug resistance of microbes against three different ecological adaptations.Hydrophytic adaptation (Nymphaea nouchali), Xerophytic adaptation (Aloe vera), Mesophytic adaptation (Tridax procumbens)

S. Sreeremya


Multidrug resistance is the ability of microorganisms to be resistant to more than two drugs. In this study, the multidrug resistance of microbes against three different ecological adaptations, Hydrophytic adaptations. The study indicated that the plants from xerophytic adaptation shows the higher antimicrobial activity than that of hydrophytic and mesophytic adaptations.
