Metal Tolerant Mycorrhizal Plants: A Review from the Perspective on Industrial Waste in Temperate Region
The chapter summarizes research carried out on the role of mycorrhizal fungi in phytoremediation of heavy-metal-rich wastes in temperate regions. Symbiotic fungi are an important component of soil… Expand
A comparison of the thermostability of cellulases from various thermophilic fungi

- 1 October 1987
SummaryThe cellulase activities of six thermophilic fungi were compared. Although the thermophilic fungi grew at relatively high temperatures (>45°C) the optimum temperatures for assaying the various… Expand
Metal uptake by xerothermic plants introduced into Zn-Pb industrial wastes
The dusty surfaces of post-flotation wastes contain high concentrations of toxic compounds and spread widely if appropriate vegetation is not introduced. It has been previously established that… Expand
Production and localization of cellulases and β-glucosidase from the thermophilic fungusThielaviaterrestris
SummaryThe enzyme production and localization ofThielaviaterrestris strains C464 and NRRL 8126 were compared to determine their optimum temperature and pH for cellulase activity. High levels of… Expand
Estimation of fungal growth on lignocellulosic substrates using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay
The feasibility of using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for quantifying the growth ofThielavia terrestris on cellulosic substrates was studied. WhenT. terrestris was grown, using… Expand
Phytoremediation with Geosiphon-like symbiosis?
Dear Editor, In their recent article published in Environmental Science and Pollution Research, Anna Ogar et al. (2015) have shown, thanks to a careful experimental design, that the addition of… Expand
