Title: Screening of fungi for soil remediation potential

Author: Lamar, Richard T.; Main, Laura M.; Dietrich, Diane M.; Glaser, John A.;

Date: 1999

Source: Bioremediation of contaminated soils. Madison, Wis. : American Society of Agronomy, 1999: Pages 437-456

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The purpose of the present investigation was to determine if physiological and/or biochemical factors such as growth rate, tolerance to and ability to degrade PCP or creosote have use for predicting the potential bioremediation performance of fungi. Because we have focused the initial development of a fungal-based soil remediation technology on PCP- and/or creosote-contaminated soils, the groups of fungi that were evaluated in this study were organisms isolated or known to grow on PCP- or creosote- treated wood.

Keywords: Soil remediation, fungi, bioremediation, comtaminated soils
