phosphate solubilizing bacteria
|Abstract:||Estuarine and open coastal biotopes along the Chennai coast were sampled bimonthly for total heterotrophic as well as phosphate solubilizing bacteria (PSB) between January and December 1999. THB was high during months January, September and November. THB population ranged from 6.03 – 8.13 x 10<sup>5</sup> cells ml<sup>-1</sup> and phosphate solubilizing bacterial population from 1.00–1.3 x 10<sup>3</sup> cells ml<sup>-1</sup>. <i style="">Pseudomonas </i>and <i style="">Bacillus </i>were found to solubilize more phosphates than others. Further the phosphate solubilizing potential of <i style="">Pseudomonas </i>was confirmed in broth cultures where P solubilization was<i style=""> </i>1700 mg /ml<sup>-1</sup> associated with reduction of <i>p</i>H.|
