Impacts of Salinity Intrusion on Nitrogen Fixing Microbial Community of Sesbania bispinosa from Three Different Regions of Bangladesh

Abstract The salinity intrusion due to the effect of global climate change is a major concern in the coastal regions of Bangladesh. It makes both surface- and ground-water saline along the coast which hampers the natural ecosystems and in extreme cases can challenge extinctions of different species. Nitrogen fixing bacteria living in a symbiotic relationship.. Read More



Abstract Climate change is becoming a major concern in Bangladesh agriculture day by day. Bangladesh is an agro based country and its agriculture is completely dependent on climatic situations. The abrupt distribution of rainfall, terminal drought occurrence, reduction of surface water flow, ground water depletion and salinity intrusion in costal area are causing sever water.. Read More
