  • Among all the microbes reported to degrade plastic, bacteria are the fast-growing key players with potential to degrade plastic waste. Like fungi and other microbes, plastic-degrading bacteria too have the similar sources. In the present chapter, an attempt was made to discuss the collection, isolation, screening, and molecular characterization of plastic (polythene) degrading bacteria from the rhizosphere soil of Avicennia marina from the 12 different ecogeographical sites along the West Coast… CONTINUE READING
