Brine shrimp lethality by VS and different organic extracts. Lethal concentration (LC50) of VS and different organic extracts for brine shrimp nauplii (Artemia salina). Data are shown as mean ± SD of twenty shrimps for each concentration. A. conyzoides, C. suffruticosa, L. indica, L. aspera, S. sophera and S. torvum showed LC50 values 508.86 ± 6.62, 41.16 ± 1.26, 2.65 ± 0.16, 181.67 ± 1.65, 233.37 ± 7.74 and 478.40 ± 3.23 μg/ml, respectively, with reference to vincristine sulfate (LC50, 0.76 ± 0.04. Data were processed with Tukey’s post hoc test for multiple comparisons, SPSS for windows, version 18.0, p < 0.05) from each other.
