Selection of bacteria and plant seeds for potential use in the remediation of diesel contaminated soils

Selection of bacteria and plant seeds for potential use in the remediation of diesel contaminated soils

Journal of Basic Microbiology 45(4): 251-256

Enumeration and recovery of the dominant bacteria from a chronically fuel contaminated soil has been investigated. Bacterial counts from these polluted soils ranged between 0.70x108 and 28.20x108 CFU/g soil. Three different types of bacterial colonies have been recovered on the agar plates. Biochemical examination of the recovered bacteria revealed that they mainly belonged to the genus Pseudomonas, Micrococcus and Bacillus.
