Performance of bioaugmentation-assisted phytoextraction applied to metal contaminated soils: a review.
Bioaugmentation-assisted phytoextraction is a promising method for the cleaning-up of soils contaminated by metals. Bacteria mainly Plant Growth Promoting Rhizobacteria (PGPR) and fungi mainlyExpand

Enhanced phytoextraction of an agricultural Cr- and Pb-contaminated soil by bioaugmentation with siderophore-producing bacteria.
Bioaugmentation-assisted phytoextraction may enhance the phytoextraction efficiency thanks to larger metal mobilization by microbial metabolites. Green fluorescent protein-tagged cells of PseudomonasExpand

Changes in Extractability of Cr and Pb in a Polycontaminated Soil After Bioaugmentation With Microbial Producers of Biosurfactants, Organic Acids and Siderophores
Partly because of the low bioavailability of metals, the soil cleaning-up using phytoremediation is usually time-consuming. In order to enhance the amount of metals at the plant's disposal, the soilExpand

New insights into the metal specificity of the Pseudomonas aeruginosa pyoverdine-iron uptake pathway.
Pyoverdine (PvdI) is the major siderophore secreted by Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAOI in order to get access to iron. After being loaded with iron in the extracellular medium, PvdI is transported acrossExpand

Inter-laboratory evaluation of the ISO standard 11063 "Soil quality - Method to directly extract DNA from soil samples".
Extracting DNA directly from micro-organisms living in soil is a crucial step for the molecular analysis of soil microbial communities. However, the use of a plethora of different soil DNA extractionExpand

Chemically-induced resistance on soybean inhibits nodulation and mycorrhization
Induced plant resistance (IR) against pathogen infection can be triggered by various chemical and biological elicitors. The effectiveness of elicitors to induce resistance as a practical means toExpand

Effects of earthworms on the fungal community and microbial activity in root-adhering soil of Lantana camara during phytoextraction of lead
Abstract Earthworms are known to stimulate soil microorganisms and to enhance phytoextraction of metals. This study was designed to test the hypothesis that the positive effect of earthworms onExpand
