Abstract:

The alcoholic leaf extract of Lantana indica Roxb. For the one, two or three weeks induced a number of haematological alterations in the freshwater, Indian cat fishes Heteropneustes fossilis (Bloch). It has been shown that leucocytes differential counts were decreased significant compared to controls, serum total proteins, serum glucose, serum total lipid, serum total cholesterol and serum creatinine. Heteropneustes fossilis is a common fish of Indian captured fishery its distributed to freshwater of India, Pakistan, Ceylon, Burma and China. The results showing after 24 h exposure of alcoholic leaf extracts of Lantana indica against Heteropneustes fossilis treated with doses of 7.0 mg/L caused 23% mortality and 9.0, 11.0 and 13.0 mg/L caused 53, 75 and 96%, mortality and after exposure to doses up to 48, 72 and 96 h, in laboratory conditions there was no mortality, respectively. Results concerning red blood cell counts, exhibited a decrease in their numbers after three weeks from the control group (2575.64.13) to (154.00.180) in alcoholic leaf extracts treated freshwater fish Heteropneustes fossilis
