dc.description.abstract Mangrove samples revealed the presence of large number of adherent bacteria compared to free-living forms. Isolates were able to grow on plant polymers, xylan and cellulose. Most of these bacteria were pigmented, while only 25 percent of the free-living bacteria were pigmented. Among the pigments produced by Pseudomonas and Serratia species, prodigiosin and phenazines were detected and characterized. The adherent isolates showed 1.11 to 13.04 percent adherence to hexadecane with some showing 90 percent adherence to plant litter. Two isolates showing highest adherence to plant litter were identified as Staphylococcus.
