About this book


This book is a collection of  scholarly articles presenting the research results of work carried out under the supervision of Prof. Saroj Bhosle, a microbiologist at Goa University, India.The objective of this volume is to document the comprehensive ecological knowledge of eubacteria isolated from diverse coastal ecosystems of Goa, little explored for microbiological studies. These ecosystems need to be properly tapped in order to reveal potential bacteria yet to be exploited. The topics of this book are  particularly relevant to researchers and students in the field of microbiology with an interest in the varied aspects of eubacteria. They  provide academic insight for scientific communities in Goa and the rest of the world.
