Abstract: The present study gives results of chemical composition analyses and antimicrobial activity testing of three Erodium species: E. ciconium L., E. cicutarium L., and E. absinthoides Willd. Essential oils were obtained by hydro-distillation from air-dried entire plants and analyzed by GC and GC-MS. A total of 209 different compounds were identified: 162 for E. cicutarium, 107 for E. ciconium, and 79 for E. absinthoides. Antimicrobial activity (broth microdilution method) of the oils was screened against a panel of Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria and a number of fungi. Moderate susceptibility of all tested strains was observed. Determined MIC values were 0. 156-5 mg mL-1 (bacterial strains) and 0. 039-0. 325 mg mL-1 (fungal strains). Major component of the most active oil, palmitic acid, was also tested for activity together with stearic and myristic acids. © 2009 Institute of Chemistry, Slovak Academy of Sciences.
