In vitro study to screen the antifungal activity of liverwort Plagiochasma appendiculatum against Alternaria solani was conducted by using different concentrations of crude aqueous extract. Results based on colony diameter and fresh weight revealed that lower concentrations of plant extract were less effective but higher concentrations were found to be much potent in inhibiting fungal growth both vegetative and reproductive phase.
