Abstract

Antibacterial potentials of honey samples collected from hill and plain regions of Tamilnadu, south India when tested against human pathogenic bacteria viz., Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Clostridium perfringens, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, showed region-wise differences only with regard to S. aureus, B. cereus and C. perfringens.
