Glomalin-related soil protein in a Mediterranean ecosystem affected by a copper smelter and its contribution to Cu and Zn sequestration.
The amount of glomalin-related soil protein (GRSP), a glycoprotein produced by arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), its contribution to the sequestering of Cu and Zn in the soil, and the micrositeExpand

Temporal temperature gradient gel electrophoresis (TTGE) as a tool for the characterization of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi.
The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of using temporal temperature gradient electrophoresis (TTGE) of PCR-amplified 18S rDNA fragments of different Glomus species for their detectionExpand

Phytoremediation of Metal-Polluted Soils by Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi
Human activities generate wastes, some of which contain large amounts of heavy metals/metalloids that could enter natural ecosystems and alter the activities and functioning of soil micro- andExpand

Effects of different tillage system on arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal propagules and physical properties in a Mediterranean agroecosystem in central Chile
Arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi improve soil quality by increasing soil structure stability through the glomalin (glomalin related soil protein, GRSP) production, but diverse tillage systems canExpand

Influence of copper on root exudate patterns in some metallophytes and agricultural plants.
A hydroponic experiment was carried out to determine the root exudation patterns in two Cu-metallophytes (Oenothera picensis and Imperata condensata) and two agricultural plants (Lupinus albus andExpand

Chicken-manure-derived biochar reduced bioavailability of copper in a contaminated soil
PurposeCopper (Cu) contamination has been increasing in land ecosystems due to economic development activities. Excessive amount of Cu in soils is toxic to both plants and microorganisms. BiocharExpand

Mathematical Modeling of Coal Gasification in a Fluidized Bed Reactor Using a Eulerian Granular Description
A three-dimensional computational model was developed to describe the coal-gasification processes inside fluidized-bed reactors. The commercial multi-purpose CFD code FLUENT 6.3 was employed, takingExpand

Effects of biochar on copper immobilization and soil microbial communities in a metal-contaminated soil
PurposeCopper (Cu) contamination has been increasing in land ecosystems. Biochars (BCs) and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are known to bind metals, and metallophyte can remove metals from soils.Expand
