Abstract:

The wide spread use of petroleum products leads to contamination of soil and aquatic environments thereby possess a serious threat to all life forms counting humans. Hydrocarbon degrading bacteria were isolated from petrol contaminated soil to determine their biodegradation capabilities of aromatic hydrocarbon. A study was conducted in order to decipher the microorganisms from oil contaminated sites for oil degradation abilities. Five soil samples were screened for oil degrading bacteria in Nutrient agar medium. Among those samples totally 10 isolates were screened to determine their biodegrading activities on hydrocarbon.
