The present study aimed at identifying the soil bacterial communities in the Madhupur Sal and the Sunderban mangrove forests, the two important forests of Bangladesh. Soil bacteria were identified through sequencing of PCR-amplified fragments of bacterial 16S rDNA. The results showed that the bacterial communities of the Madhupur Sal forest soils and that of the Sunderban mangrove forest soils differed in the morphology of the cells. Data presented here also showed that the bacterial
