The high metal bioavailability and the poor conditions of mine soils yield a low plant biomass, limiting the application of phytoremediation techniques. A greenhouse experiment was performed to evaluate the effects of organic amendments on metal stabilization and the potential of Brassica juncea L. for phytostabilization in mine soils. Plants were grown in(More)
Industrial fertilization with an excess of mineral fertilizer leads to water pollution and global warming. For instance, high mineral fertilization rates in coffee plantations of Ecuador result in N losses, such as emissions of N2O, a greenhouse gas to the atmosphere. Therefore, we conducted here field experiments to optimize fertilization. We studied the(More)
