AbstractIn this study the antifungal activity alcoholic extract of resin produced by the plant Boswellia carterii was evaluated on two types of fungi isolated from milk of cows infected with mycotic mastitis: Aspergillus niger and Blastomycis dermatidis compared with some potent antifungal drugs : Nystatin, Clotrimazol and Tolnaftate. seven concentrations of the plant extract and antifungal drugs were used (5,10,15,25,50,75,100 mg/ml). the plant extract showed antifungal activity against both types of fungi elicited by decrease in the diameter of their growth zone inversely related with increasing concentrations of the extract.
