Summary: The antimicrobial activity was assessed in 4 organic extracts of the lichens Lobaria subdissecta and Parmoterma latissimum by using the disc-diffusion method utilizing a microbial battery of 2 bacteria Gram positive and 2 Gram negative, all of them of human and clinical interest. We noted that the nonpolar extracts showed more activity of grown inhibition of the bacterias test.
