Abstract

Laboratory studies were conducted to evaluate the molluscicidal properties of three Saudi Arabian Euphorbiales. The results showed that the methanol extract of Euphorbia schimperiana has a high molluscicidal potency. The activity remains stable over a wide range of temperature and pH values, in the presence of organic and inorganic substrates and after exposure of the solutions to ultraviolet radiation.
