Studies on photosynthetic bacteria: 1. Ecology of photosynthetic bacteria in aquatic environment in Goa

A. Aguiar, J. DeSouza


Photosynthetic bacteria were isolated from mud samples under strictly anaerobic conditions. Marine and fresh water mud samples were collected from different places in Goa to study the ecology of the bacteria present. The isolated bacteria were studied microscopically for their morphology and other characteristics. Identification of these bacteria was done with the help of Bergey's Manual of Determinative Bacteriology. Three types of bacteria were identified: (1) green sulphur bacteria (2) purple sulphur bacteria and (3) non-sulphur purple bacteria
