We attempted a study of the association ecology of pedospheric bacteria associated with its rhizosphere. A total of 9 (nine) bacteria were isolated from rhizospheric soil collected from 8 natural locations of the Brahmaputra valley, distributed in 4 districts of Assam, India. The association between rhizospheric bacteria and fungal biota (including endomycorrhizae and non-mycorrhizal fungi) with abiotic soil properties can be exclusively advocated for a broader utilization as an ecological indicator for the conservation of target plant species as discussed in the present paper.</p> <p><strong>DOI:</strong> <a href=""></a></p> Vipin Parkash, Ankur Jyoti Saikia ##submission.copyrightStatement## Mon, 09 Apr 2018 00:00:00 +0200
