Moreover, supplementations of Bamboo-Cass, resulted in increasing the amylolytic bacteria, and cellulolytic bacteria while proteolytic bacterial was not affected with 150 g/head/d of Bamboo-Cass supplementation, which could be due to the decrease of protozoal population and hence, the methanogens [45].
The gastrointestinal tract microbiota of oysters contained similar relative proportions (calculated based on the mean of the logarithm of the CFU g of [tissue.sup.-1]) of all the metabolic-related bacterial groups (data from both groups were combined): 26% amylolytic bacteria, 21% lipolytic bacteria, 18% proteolytic bacteria, 18% cellulolytic bacteria and 17% lactic acid bacteria.
The opposite trend was observed for the population density of amylolytic bacteria, with higher numbers found in San Pedro de los Milagros and Entrerrios (3.0 x [10.sup.5] CFU/g dry soil) and lower numbers found in Belmira (9.4 x [10.sup.4] CFU/g dry soil).
This can be explained by the high lignocellulosic content present in banana stalk, indicating the need of easier assimilation material to the fermentation process to promote the amplified expression of amylolytic activities.
