Rumen microbial community comprising of bacteria, archaea, fungi, and protozoa is characterized not only by the high population density but also by the remarkable diversity and the most complex microecological interactions existing in the biological world. This unprecedented biodiversity is quite far from full elucidation as only about 15–20 % of the rumen microbes are identified and characterized till date using conventional culturing and microscopy. However, the last two decades have… CONTINUE READING
