Many polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are known to be toxic and their contamination of soil and aquifers is of great environment concern. In the present study the degradation of naphthalene a model PAH by nitrogen fixing bacteria was investigated and an efficient naphthalene degrader sp. was screened. Twenty isolates degrading naphthalene as a sole source of carbon and energy were isolated from petroleum contaminated sites. They were identified by using standard microbiological methods.fatcat:lokhnlmq6vhtjft2kcsgballdy
