Actinobacteia are known to interact with a number of macro and microorganisms. Symbiotic interaction between actinobacteria and its host observed in insects, human, animals and plants, where the bacteria provide protection of the host against pathogen, produce essential nutrients, enzymes and facilitate digestion of food particles. In the other hand, actinobacteria also responsible in causing of diseases like actinomycetoma and tuberculosis in human, nocardiosis and dermatophilosis in animals, and scab in plants. This chapter covers the literature which describes the symbiotic interaction of actinobacteria with different vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as common actinobacteria associated diseases in human, animals and plants.
