Abstract

Extracts of increasing polarity of 6 Venezuelan plants belonging to the Chrysobalanaceae family were tested for possible letal:toxicity against Biomphalaria glabrata Say, a snail intermediate hosts of Schistosoma mansoni Sambon. The piscicidal toxicity of the active extracts was also evaluated with the aim of findings compounds without toxicity in nontarget organisms, principally fishes and humans.
