Abstract: Aluminium and copper resistant bacteria, isolated from contaminated soil, showed metal tolerance level of 3106M and 4398 M, respectively as evident by four select isolates based on their phosphorus solubilization potential (0.2-6.4 g ml-1). All four isolates could grow in a pH range of 5-11. Three isolates are member of Pseudomonadaceae family, Pseudomonas sp. (CD7),P. pseudomalli (CGI3) and P. maltophila (THI8). The isolates, CD7 and CG13, belong to siderovar group as the Pseudomonas sp. strain BI0, and are able to grow at 42°C. The CG13 is osmotolerant (10% NaCI). These isolates could be better bioinoculant candidate(s) for the contaminated alkalophilic sites.
