Abstract:
Large numbers of alkaliphihc streptomycetes were isolated from six out of seven composite sand samples collected across a beach and sand dune system using starch-casein-nitrate agar supplemented with cycloheximide and buffered to pH 10.5. The isolates, which had colonial and chemotaxonomic properties consistent with their classification in the genus Streptomyces, were assigned to 49 multimembered and 114 single-membered colour-groups given their ability to produce pigments on oatmeal and peptone-yearst- extract agars, and to corresponding groups based on whole-genome rep-PCR banding patterns.
