Abstract: The present study deals with isolation and identification of bacteria from soil collected from different sites of Dibru-Saikhowa National Park and Biosphere Reserve Forest of Assam, India. Eight strains were isolated from three different sites namely Guijan Ghat, Guijan Gaon and Lekai Gaon of Dibru-Saikhowa, Assam, India. The isolates identified were Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Shigella spp., Staphylococcus epidermidis, Klebsiella pneumonia, Proteus vulgaris and Enterococcus faecalis on the basis of their morphological study and biochemical tests. Our present study concludes that those microbes present in the soil help in degradation of bio-molecules of dead plants and animals body, controls nutrient energy cycle and thus remain engaged in bioremediation and maintains the ecological balance.
