Comparative study of Pb-phytoextraction potential in Sesuvium portulacastrum and Brassica juncea: tolerance and accumulation.
Lead phytoextraction from salty soils is a difficult task because this process needs the use of plants which are able to tolerate salt and accumulate Pb(2+) within in their shoots. It has recentlyExpand

NaCl alleviates Cd toxicity by changing its chemical forms of accumulation in the halophyte Sesuvium portulacastrum
It has previously been shown that certain halophytes can grow and produce biomass despite of the contamination of their saline biotopes with toxic metals. This suggests that these plants are able toExpand

Nodulation by Sinorhizobium meliloti originated from a mining soil alleviates Cd toxicity and increases Cd-phytoextraction in Medicago sativa L.
Besides their role in nitrogen supply to the host plants as a result of symbiotic N fixation, the association between legumes and Rhizobium could be useful for the rehabilitation ofExpand

Polyamine and tyramine involvement in NaCl-induced improvement of Cd resistance in the halophyte Inula chrithmoides L.
The aim of the present work was to analyze the impact of salinity on the plant response to Cd toxicity in the Mediterranean halophyte species Inula crithmoides. For this purpose, cuttings wereExpand

Comparative study of Cd tolerance and accumulation potential between Cakile maritima L. (halophyte) and Brassica juncea L.
In this work we evaluated Cd-phytoextraction ability of the halophyte Cakile maritima comparatively to the glycophyte Brassica juncea commonly recommended for phytoextraction. Seedlings were grown inExpand

Cd and Ni transport and accumulation in the halophyte Sesuvium portulacastrum: implication of organic acids in these processes
The implication of organic acids in Cd and Ni translocation was studied in the halophyte species Sesuvium portulacastrum. Citric, fumaric, malic, and ascorbic acids were separated and quantified byExpand

EDTA-enhanced phytoremediation of lead-contaminated soil by the halophyte Sesuvium portulacastrum
The low bioavailability of Pb and low number of Pb-tolerant plant species represent an important limitation for Pb phytoextraction. It was recently suggested that halophyte plant species may be aExpand

Evaluation of the Cd2+ phytoextraction potential in the xerohalophyte Salsola kali L. and the impact of EDTA on this process
The application of the phytoextraction in saline soil contaminated with heavy metals requires the identification of appropriate plant species showing high salinity tolerance concomitant with anExpand

Why Does the Halophyte Mesembryanthemum crystallinum Better Tolerate Ni Toxicity than Brassica juncea: Implication of Antioxidant Defense Systems
The implication of enzymatic and non-enzymatic antioxidative systems in response to Ni was evaluated in the halophyte Mesembryanthemum crystallinum in comparison with the metal tolerant glycophyteExpand
