Abstract: Aluminium and copper resistant bacteria, isolated from contaminated soil, showed metal tolerance level of 3106<img src='/image/spc_char/micro.gif' border=0>M and 4398 <img src='/image/spc_char/micro.gif' border=0>M, respectively as evident by four select isolates based on their phosphorus solubilization potential (0.2-6.4 <img src='/image/spc_char/micro.gif' border=0>g ml<sup>-1</sup>). All four isolates could grow in a <i>pH </i>range of 5-11. Three isolates are member of Pseudomonadaceae family, <i>Pseudomonas </i>sp. (CD7),<i>P. pseudomalli </i>(CGI3) and <i>P. maltophila </i>(THI8). The isolates, CD7 and CG13, belong to siderovar group as the <i>Pseudomonas </i>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.
