Abstract:

The objective of the study conducted was to screen & isolate fungi capable of degrading the fruit litter of Albizia lebbeck. These fruit Biomass are often disposed by burning, which pose an environmental pollution problem. The fruit biomass can be potentially converted to various value added products like bio fuels, cheap energy sources for fermentation, improved animal feeds. Considering these facts the present work is focused on isolation of fruit litter degrading fungi. The fruit litter was allowed to degrade in specially made pits and soil sample from the degraded fruit was used for the isolation of fungi. Isolation was done by serial dilution method and direct inoculation method on czapekdox agar medium. 14 different fungi were isolated and they were tested qualitatively for their capability to release cellulases, xylanases and ligninases. Out of the 14 fungi isolated, Isolate 2(IS2) identified as Aspergillus niger had shown the potential of releasing of cellulases, xylanases and ligninases.


Keywords: Albizia lebbeck, Biomass, Cellulases, Xylanases, Ligninases.
