Effect of endosulfan on the bacterial and fungal populations in the gut of
the Indian earthworm Lampito mauritii (Kinberg)

Sublethal lower concentration (1/10th of 96 h LC50 value 0.005 ppm kg-1) and sublethal higher concentration (1/3rd of 96 h
LC50 value 0.016 ppm kg-1) (T2) of endosulfan reduced the gut microbial proliferation of Lampito mauritii upto 15 days of
exposure.

Keywords: endosulfan, Lampito mauritii, microbial population, microbial species, soil substrate
