Sixty plant species were collected in the Ivory Coast on the basis of an ethnobotanical literature using the following three criteria: activity against worms, diarrhoea and/or abdominal pain. Eighty six plant extracts were prepared using 90% ethanol and tested for potential anthelminthic activities with a larvicidal test of <b>Haemonchus contortus</b>. 25.6% of the extracts showed a high activity, 12.8% were active or marginally active and the remaining 61.6% were inactive. The fact that a relatively high percentage of the plants species (50%) had an activity can be explained by the initial preselection of the plants on the basis of ethnobotanical indications.
