ISOLATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF Aeromonas spp FROM POND WATER AND FISHES IN ILE-IFE OSUN STATE, NIGERIA.

ABSTRACTThe study was carried out to isolate, characterize and investigate the antibiotic susceptibility pattern of Aeromonas species isolated from pond water and fish samples at Sabo and Iloro pond sites in Ile-Ife, Osun State. Physicochemical parameters of the water samples such as pH, temperature, total dissolved solid (TDS), dissolved oxygen (DO) and biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) were determined using standard methods. Aeromonas species was isolated by the spread plate technique for bo...

Identification and Characterization of Cellulase Producing Fungi.

ABSTRACTHymenula cerealis, Neottiosporella radiata, Sphaerosporium lignatile, and Monilochaetes infuscans were isolated from soil of Botanical Garden, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. The soil sample was serially diluted and isolation was done using pour plate method. The organisms were then screened for cellulase production using carboxymethyl cellulase and Congo red. The screening result showed that Hymenula cerealis, Neottiosporella radiata, and Sphaerosporium lignatile are capabl...
