Abstract
The seasonal variation of alkaloids has been investigated in leaf, bark and wood of Sesbania rostrata, Sesbania exaltata and Sesbania sesban, which are medicinally important. The leaves of Sesbania rostrata showed high level of lipid content (range 29.14 to 31.86 mg/g dry wt.) than Sesbania exaltata and Sesbania sesban (26.53 to 28.45 mg/g dry wt. and 22.78 to 24.60 mg/g dry wt.) respectively. The leaves of Sesbania rostrata showed high level of alkaloid (1.90 to 2.69 mg/g dry wt.) than Sesbania exaltata and Sesbania sesban (1.78 to 2.40 mg/g dry wt. and 1.34 to 1.92 mg/g dry wt.) respectively.
Key words: Lipid, Alkaloid, Medicinal plant and genus Sesbania
