In the present investigation about bacterial diversity from mangrove soil of Tamilnadu in four seasons were analyzed. Bacterial isolation was done by the soil dilution method incubated at 37°C for 24 hours. Totally twenty-seven different bacterial colonies were isolated from Karankadu mangrove soil. The maximum bacterial colonies were presented in summer seasons were compare with pre-monsoon, monsoon and post-monsoon seasons. The predominant bacterial genera namely Micrococcus spp., Bacillus spp., Acetobacter spp., Pseudomonas spp., Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., Enterococcus spp., Sulfidobacillus spp., Escherichia coli.,  Aeromonas spp., Brevibacterium spp., Listeria spp., Azotobacter spp., Cellulomonas spp., Corynebacterium spp., Aerococcus spp., Klebsiella spp., Marinococcus spp., Enterobacter spp., Thiobacillus spp., Planococcus spp and Shigella spp.

Keywords: Bacterial diversity, Mangrove soil, Morphological and Biochemical characterization
