Ethanolic extract of the roots of Zizyphus oenoplia were screened for its anthelmintic activity against Pheretima posthuma. The parameters like the time of paralysis and the time of death were determined by using the extract at the concentrations of 10, 20and 50 mg/ml. The extract exhibited significant anthelmintic activity at highest concentration of 50 mg/ml. Albendazole (20mg/ml) was used as standard reference and distilled water as control.
