Abstract : Microbial diversity is an important area of human and plant research concern. In present investigations, soil samples collected from CISH, Lucknow (northern zone) and MITS University campus (semi arid zone) were tested to find out the exact biological diversity lies in this region in the form of isolates made for most frequently isolated and culturable fungal and bacterial colonies present in soil samples. When compared, interestingly it was observed that Bacillus sp. and Pseudomonas sp. were dominant in isolation from soil sample of CISH, Lucknow region, while it was Streptococcus sp. in MITS University, Lakshmangarh region for bacterial colonies. For fungal agent also, Fusarium oxysporum, Fusarium solani, Trichoderma spp. and Gliocladium roseum were dominant in isolation from soil sample collected from CISH, Lucknow region, while it was Aspergillus Flavus, Aspergillus niger and Penicillum sp. from soil samples of MITS University, Lakshmangarh region. Results clearly indicates the conserve microflora in the form of most frequently isolated microbial agent, present in soil samples of northern zone (CISH, Lucknow) and semi arid zone (MITS University, Lakshmangarh) of India. Data presented here can be further utilized to correlate the isolation made and their evolutionary phylogenetic studies.
