- ... Phytoremediation is a feasible alternative to remediate soils polluted with toxic elements, which can be enhanced by manipulating plant-microbe interactions. Regarding this, free-living saprophytic fungi that interact beneficially with roots have been scarcely studied. Thus, the aim of this study was to assess the effect of a saprophytic fungus, Lewia sp., on the plant growth and the ability of Do ...

- ... The phytotoxicity due to nickel (Ni) and its accumulation in castor (Ricinus communis L.) plant of Euphorbiaceae family resulting from its addition from low to very high levels to a swell-shrink clayey soil (Haplustert) was studied in a pot culture experiment. Nine levels of Ni (0, 10, 40, 80, 120, 160, 180, 200, 250 mg Ni kg⁻¹ soil) were applied. Crop was harvested at 45 days after sowing. At the ...
