Degradation and adsorption of pesticides in compost-based biomixtures as potential substrates for biobeds in southern Europe.
Biobeds have been used in northern Europe for minimizing point source contamination of water resources by pesticides. However, little is known regarding their use in southern Europe whereExpand

On-farm biopurification systems for the depuration of pesticide wastewaters: recent biotechnological advances and future perspectives
Point source contamination of natural water resources by pesticides constitutes a serious problem and on-farm biopurification systems (BPS) were introduced to resolve it. This paper reviews theExpand

Novel biomixtures based on local Mediterranean lignocellulosic materials: evaluation for use in biobed systems.
The composition of biomixtures strongly affect the efficacy of biobeds. Typically, biomixture consists of peat (or compost), straw (STR) and topsoil (1:2:1 by volume). Straw guarantees a continuousExpand

Degradation and adsorption of terbuthylazine and chlorpyrifos in biobed biomixtures from composted cotton crop residues.
BACKGROUND Biobeds have been well studied in northern Europe, whereas little is known regarding their use in southern Europe. The degradation and adsorption of terbuthylazine (TA) and chlorpyrifosExpand

Isolation of soil bacteria able to hydrolyze both organophosphate and carbamate pesticides.
Two bacteria identified as Pseudomonas putida and Acinetobacter rhizosphaerae able to rapidly degrade the organophosphate (OP) fenamiphos (FEN) were isolated. Denaturating gradient gelExpand

Quantitative and qualitative differences in the metabolism of pesticides in biobed substrates and soil.
Biobed substrates commonly exhibit high degradation capacity. However, degradation does not always lead to detoxification and information on the metabolic pathways of pesticides in biobeds is scarce.Expand
