Phytomanagement and Remediation of Cu-Contaminated Soils by High Yielding Crops at a Former Wood Preservation Site: Sunflower Biomass and Ionome
(Frontiers Media, 2018-09-04)
This long-term field trial aimed at remediating a Cu-contaminated soil to promote crop production and soil functions at a former wood preservation site. Twenty-eight field plots with total topsoil Cu in the 198–1,169 mg ...
Agronomic practices for improving gentle remediation of trace-element-contaminated soils
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-01)
The last few decades have seen the rise of Gentle soil Remediation Options (GRO), which notably include in situ contaminant stabilization (“inactivation”) and plant-based (generally termed “phytoremediation”) options. For ...
Endophytic bacteria take the challenge to improve Cu phytoextraction by sunflower
(Springer (part of Springer Nature), 2015-01)
Endophytic bacteria from roots and crude seed extracts of a Cu-tolerant population of Agrostis capillaris were inoculated to a sunflower metal-tolerant mutant line, and their influence on Cu tolerance and phytoextraction ...
Morphological and functional responses of a metal-tolerant sunflower mutant line to a copper-contaminated soil series
(Springer (part of Springer Nature), 2018)
The potential use of a metal-tolerant sunflower mutant line for biomonitoring Cu phytoavailability, Cu-induced soil phytotoxicity, and Cu phytoextraction was assessed on a Cu-contaminated soil series (13–1020 mg Cu kg−1) ...
