Abstract

Preliminary exploration of gut flora of  Garra mullya  (Sykes) revealed  nineteen bacterial strains showing wide diversity of enzyme production, morphological and biochemical characteristics. The factors which govern the diversity assessed through principal component analysis and correspondence analysis show that isolated strain have adaptation to utilization of variety resources like citrate and sugar, and also show tolerance to variety of environmental conditions like pH, salt, and bile in in-vitro condition.
 
Key words:  Gut flora; Bacterial diversity; Garra mullya
