The application of Cd inhibited the development of mycelia of the saprobe fungi Fusarium concolor and Trichoderma koningii and the hyphal length of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi Glomus mosseae and G. deserticola in vitro. The application to soil of 25 and 50 mg l –1 of Cd decreased the shoot dry weight, the percentage of AM root length colonization and(More)
The production of hydrolytic enzymes from external mycelia associated with roots and colonized soybean roots (Glycine max L.) inoculated with different arbuscular-mycorrhizal (AM) fungi of the genus GLOMUS:, and the possible relationship between these activities and the capacity of the AM fungi to colonize plant roots was studied. There were differences in(More)
The strains PAl5 and UAP5541 of Gluconacetobacter diazotrophicus were able to produce endoglucanase (EG), endopolymethylgalacturonase (EPMG) and endoxyloglucanase (EXG) enzymes using sucrose or the corresponding substrate as the sole source of carbon. The results indicate that the hydrolytic activity of the PAl5 strain was inducible, whereas that of the(More)
The effects of the arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus deserticola on growth of tomato plants grown in the presence of olive mill residues modified by treatment with saprophytic fungi Abstract Olive oil extraction generates large amounts of olive mill residues (DOR) which may be used as fertilizer. The influence of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) on the(More)
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) fungi Glomus deserticola or G. claroideum, but these parameters were higher than in non-AM plants. As increased the percentage of AM length colonization and(More)
Sewage sludge is widely used as an organic soil amendment to improve soil fertility. We investigated the effects of sewage sludge (SS) application on certain biological parameters of Eucalyptus globulus Labill. The plant was either uninoculated or inoculated with saprobe fungi (Coriolopsis rigida and Trichoderma harzianum) or arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM)(More)
Effects of the saprophytic fungus Fusarium oxysporum on arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) colonization and plant dry matter were studied in greenhouse and field experiments. pellets of agar and alginate were tested under greenhouse conditions. Greatest plant growth and AM colonization responses in sterilized and unsterilized soils were observed with pea, Glomus(More)
Different conditions of culture medium, incubation time, concentration and surfactant were tested to determine xyloglucanase activity. Trichoderma viride, Paecilomyces farinosus, Wardomyces inflatus and Pleurotus ostreatus showed increased xyloglucanase activities when the fungi grown on microcrystalline cellulose as the sole carbon source.(More)
We studied the influence of saprophytic fungi on the toxic effect that the water-soluble substances in dry residues from olive (ADOR) have on the growth of plants. All saprophytic fungi were able to decrease the phytotoxicity of ADOR, although the toxicity of this residue did not decrease in the same way. Penicillium chrysogenum was able to reduce the(More)
Dry olive mill residue (DOR) from the olive oil production by two phase centrifugation system was fractionated by a consecutive continuous solid-liquid extraction obtaining the EAF, PF, MF and WF fractions with ethyl acetate, n-propanol, methanol and water, respectively. The chemical, chromatographic and mass spectrometric analyses showed EAF, PF and MF to(More)
