Abstract

Total 56 (CD1 to CD56) bacteria and 43 (LD1 to LD43) fungi were isolated from different collected samples from District Dang, Gujarat (India). Subsequently, it was screened for cellulose and lignin degrading capabilities. Out of total 56 bacterial isolates, 41 showed clear zones around the colonies on CMC agar and only four isolates showed color zone around the colonies on ABTS agar. Among 43 fungal isolates, 40 showed clear zones around the colonies on CMC agar and 26 isolates showed color zone around the colonies on ABTS agar. Among the isolates, bacterial isolates CD11, CD17, CD19, CD22 and CD35 showed higher zone to colony ratio on CMC agar and fungal isolates LD1, LD4, LD5, LD9, LD15, LD19, LD20 and LD39 showed higher color change on ABTS agar which were selected for further screening.
