Assessment of olive-mill wastewater as a growth medium for lipase production by Candida cylindracea in bench-top reactor.
Olive-mill wastewater (OMW) was investigated for its suitability to serve as a medium for lipase production by Candida cylindracea NRRL Y-17506. The OMW that best supported enzyme production wasExpand

Arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization and growth of soybean (Glycine max ) and lettuce (Lactuc sativa ) and phytotoxic effects of olive mill residues
We studied the influence of olive mill dry residue (DOR) on growth of soybean (Glycine max ) and lettuce (Lactuca sativa ) colonized with the arbuscular fungi Glomus mosseae or G. deserticola. TheExpand

Phenolic removal of olive-mill dry residues by laccase activity of white-rot fungi and its impact on tomato plant growth
We studied the influence of the laccase activity of two white-rot fungi on the toxic effect of water-soluble substances from dry residues of olives (ADOR) on tomato plants. Pycnoporus cinnabarinusExpand

Interaction between the soil yeast Rhodotorula mucilaginosa and the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi Glomus mosseae and Gigaspora rosea
Abstract The effect of the soil yeast, Rhodotorula mucilaginosa LBA, on Glomus mosseae (BEG n°12) and Gigaspora rosea (BEG n°9) was studied in vitro and in greenhouse trials. Hyphal length of G.Expand

Organic matter evolution and partial detoxification in two-phase olive mill waste colonized by white-rot fungi
Dry olive mill residue (DOR) is a solid waste arising from the olive oil two-phase extraction system. The objective of the present study was to investigate the impact of an aerobic treatment of DORExpand

Saprobic fungi decrease plant toxicity caused by olive mill residues
Abstract We studied the influence of dry olive mill residue (DOR), as affected by saprobic fungi on the growth of soybean (Glycine max) and tomato (Lycopersicum esculentum). The application of 60 gExpand

Bioconversion of olive-mill dry residue by Fusarium lateritium and subsequent impact on its phytotoxicity.
The present study investigated the ability of the non-pathogenic fungus Fusarium lateritium to either degrade or modify aromatic substances in olive-mill dry residue (DOR) and to reduce itsExpand

Contribution of the saprobic fungi Trametes versicolor and Trichoderma harzianum and the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi Glomus deserticola and G. claroideum to arsenic tolerance of Eucalyptus globulus.
The presence of high concentrations of arsenic (As) decreased the shoot and root dry weight, chlorophyll and P and Mg content of Eucalyptus globulus colonized with the arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM)Expand

Removal of monomeric phenols in dry mill olive residue by saprobic fungi.
The dry olive residue (DOR) obtained from the olive oil extraction process has toxic components against plants and microorganism growth, particularly monomeric phenols. In this investigation nineExpand
