Om boka

Beneficial Microbes in Agro-Ecology: Bacteria and Fungi is a complete resource on the agriculturally important beneficial microflora used in agricultural production technologies. Included are 30 different bacterial genera relevant in the sustainability, mechanisms, and beneficial natural processes that enhance soil fertility and plant growth. The second part of the book discusses 23 fungal genera used in agriculture for the management of plant diseases and plant growth promotion. Covering a wide range of bacteria and fungi on biocontrol and plant growth promoting properties, the book will help researchers, academics and advanced students in agro-ecology, plant microbiology, pathology, entomology, and nematology.

Om forfatteren

Dr. N. Amaresan is an Assistant Professor at C.G. Bhakta Institute of Biotechnology, Uka Tarsadia University, Gujarat. He is a Microbiologist, having obtained his Ph.D., degree on endophytic PGP bacteria from Bharathidasan University, Tamil Nadu. Dr. N. Amaresan has over thirteen years of experience in teaching & research and made several original and novel discoveries in various allied fields of microbiology mainly plant-microbe interactions, bioremediation, plant pathology and others. For his original discoveries on agriculturally important microorganisms he has been awarded young scientist awards by Association of Microbiologists of India and National Academy of Biological Sciences. He also been awarded visiting scientist fellowship from National Academy of India to learn advanced techniques. He also deposited over 380 bacterial 16S rDNA and fungal ITS rDNA sequences in the Genbank (NCBI, EMBL & DDBJ) and also preserved over 150 microbial germplasm in various culture collection centres of India. Dr. M. Senthil Kumar is a Senior Scientist (Microbiology) at ICAR-Indian Institute of Pulses Research, Kanpur. He has fifteen years of research experience on different aspects of plant-microbe interactions including biological control of soybean diseases and microbial mediated abiotic stress management in pulses. He explored the diversity of endophytic bacteria from wild and cultivated soybean varieties for biological control of soybean charcoal rot disease. He purified anti-microbial peptides from endophytic bacteria. He has developed bioinoculants and microbial consortia for improving moisture-deficit stress tolerance of rainfed chickpea. Dr. K. Annapurna is Head, Division of Microbiology, ICAR-Indian Agricultural Research
Institute, New Delhi-12, India. She has been a pioneer researcher in the field of molecular ecology of legume - Rhizobium symbiosis, Azospirillum, Plant growth promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) and initiated work on soybean rhizobial genetic diversity. Through individual efforts, whole genome sequence of new strains of soybean (Bradyrhizobium liaoningense KAS-1) and chickpea root nodule bacteria strain DKA-1 initiated. She has developed a PCR based diagnostic marker for rapid identification of slow growing soybean root nodulating bacteria from soil and has demonstrated the tripartite interactions between legume plant, Rhizobium and rhizobacteria. Her research into endophytes and soil metagenomics has identified potent biocontrol agents and genes coding for different antibiotics. A highly potent bio-control agent Paenibacillus polymyxa HKA 15 which reduced the incidence of charcoal rot in soybean by almost 80% identified. She is currently focusing on the impact of bio-inoculants especially bio-control agents on soil microbial community diversity and structure. She visited several international research organizations as visiting scientist/ research collaborator including University of Tennessee, Knoxville and University of Missouri, Columbia) USA, CSIRO laboratories in Australia under the Australian Govt. Crawford Fund, Beijing University, Beijing, China, Ege University, Turkey, Oxford Univ and JIC, Norwich, etc. She received several awards via., IARI Best Teacher Award for Excellence in Teaching, Young Scientist Award conferred by Society of Basic and Applied Mycology, Women Leadership Award conferred by Asian PGPR Society, India Woman leader in Biosciences -Recognition by Department of Biotechnology, Govt. of India. Dr. Krishna Kumar is Head, Division of Crop Protection at Indian Institute of Pulses Research (IIPR), Kanpur, India. He worked as a Research Associate at IARI, New Delhi, Assistant Professor at SKUAST, Jammu and then served as a Senior Scientist and Principal nScientist at Central Agricultural Research Institute, Port Blair. He has over 20 years of research, teaching and extension experience in mushroom production, bio-control, microbial diversity, integrated disease management, diagnosis of unknown plant diseases and suitable bio-control agents. He is a recipient of Fakhruddin Ali Ahmed Award for Outstanding Research in Tribal Farming Systems-2010 by Indian Council of Agricultural Research, New Delhi, India, SPPS Meritorious Scientist Award-2011 by Society of Plant Protection Sciences, New Delhi, India and Distinguished Service Award-2010 for his contribution in Plant Pathology by BIOVED Research Society, Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. He is a fellow of three prestigious professional societies and life member of 12 scientific societies. He also deposited 42 microorganisms at National Bureau of Agriculturally Important Microorganisms (NCBI) and submitted 400 sequences of them to NCBI. He delivered several radio talks and TV shows on different topics for the benefit of farming community. Dr. A. Sankaranarayanan is an Assistant Professor in Microbiology, C.G. Bhakta Institute of Biotechnology, Uka Tarsadia University, Gujarat. He previously served as an Assistant Professor & Head, Department of Microbiology, K.S.R. College of Arts & Science, Tiruchengode, Tamil Nadu. He has experience in the fields of antimicrobial activity, antibacterial potential of nanoparticles and environmental microbiology. His current research focus is on antibacterial potential of herbal products against multi drug resistant microbial pathogens and pesticide / insecticide degradation by bacteria and fungi in freshwater ecosystem. He received a summer research fellowship for young teachers consecutively for three years by National Academies of India
