In the present investigation an indigenous medicinal plant species of the Western Ghats Butea monosperma were selected to explore its morphogenic potentialities under in vitro condition, to isolate active constituents from different plant part extracts and to evaluate pharmacological properties of the crude and isolated constituents for antipyretic, antidiabetic, disorders. The antipyretic potential of B. monosperma was evaluated using yeast induced pyrexia on Albino rats and petroleum ether extract exhibited significant antipyretic activity after 90 minutes (37.56±0.20) and 120 minutes (37.33± 0.14) as compared to standard group (37.38±0.18). In view of the alleged antidiabetic potential of B. monsperma plant and for the claim that their leaves and stem possesses more curative properties in general, among the different extracts of B. monsperma, significant antidiabetic activity was noticed in animal groups treated with ethanol extract of stem, it had exhibited highly significant antidiabetic activity after 3 hours of administration of extract (263.53±6.28).
