Abstract

In the wake of restrictions to use antibiotics in culture operations efforts are on to search for alternate compounds which would be environment friendly. It has been observed that natural compounds from marine micro-organisms, corals and sponges could be the most promising bio-active agents_ (Okazaki, and Okami (1972). In view of this the present work deals with searching of antagonistic actinomycetes for probable antibacterial, antifungal agents of mangrove origin.
