ABSTRACT
The effects of extracts from five Albizia (Fabaceae) endemic species from Madagascar (A. arenicola, A. boivini, A. bernieri, A. polyphylla and A. tulearensis) were tested on vegetable seedling development. Crude extracts were obtained through cold or hot extraction methods on dried powdered seeds, seed teguments, leaves or empty pods. They were thereafter purified using techniques based on physicochemical properties of active substances. Assays were carried out on seedling growth of Monocotyledons and Dicotyledons representatives. Results showed that all extracts exerted significant dose dependent inhibition on epicotyl and hypocotyl growth. However, some extracts exhibited a slight stimulation effect at low doses. Moreover, A. arenicola crude extract (E23) slightly inhibited axillary bud growth, while A. tulearensis crude extract (E71) showed a stimulation effect. According to preliminary phytochemical screening results, these effects might be due to saponins or alkaloids.
