Isolation And Identification Of Luminescent Bacteria From Mangrove Areas In Parangipettai Coastal Areas, Southeast Coast Of India
- Luminescent bacteria, mangrove, Vibrio sp..
The present study was carried out to isolate luminescent bacteria from the sediment sample collected from mangrove areas in Parangipettai. The luminous bacteria density was found to be 5 X 104 CFU/g in sediment samples. Totally 10 luminous bacteria selected for biochemical analysis and genus level identification. The results shows all ten bacterial isolates were belonging to the genus Vibrio sp. Vibrio sp are the good indicator of the environmental conditions. Hence, it is useful to assess the environmental conditions of an aquatic environment.
