Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the correlation between the physicochemical properties of the soils of Mts. Palay-Palay National Park Restoration Zone in relation to the diversity of the isolated species of Pseudomonas from three stations of Mts. Palay-Palay National Park Restoration Zone. The properties of the soil that were tested were temperature, pH content, nitrogen and phosphorus content and soil texture. Pseudomonas colonies from the soil were grown through serial dilutions and were characterized based on their colony morphology. Isolates were subjected to gram staining and differential tests which include fluorescence method, growth at 4°C and growth at 41°C to differentiate and characterize the different putative Pseudomonas species. Out of all stations, Pseudomonas aeruginosa gained the highest frequency of isolates, whereas, Pseudomonas vescularis gained the lowest frequency of isolates. Statistics and personal observations were done to establish the quantitative and qualitative relationship between Pseudomonas and the physicochemical properties of the soils of Mts. Palay-Palay National Park Restoration Zone. All in all, the study ascertains that there exist a positive correlation between the pH of the soils of Mts. Palay-Palay National Park Restoration Zone and the Pseudomonas isolates.
