Ecologia Balkanica 2013; 5(1) : 31-35
The present work was carried out in the soils of Yusmarg forest to study about the bacterial load (density and diversity), to identify and isolate the bacteria from the soils. During the study a total of thirty six isolates were obtained, among thirty-six different isolates obtained at the four sites B7 and B8 were present at all the four sites, B6 and B9 were present only at site I in November, B16 and B17 were present only at site II in November, B19, B22, B23 and B24 were present only at site III in November, B32, B33 and B34 were present only at site III in December and B35 was present only at site IV in December. Comparative analysis of different types of colonies found at the four sites during the study indicates that the bacterial load was dominant in the month of November.
