Highly tolerant and productive willow cultivars have been identified as potential candidates for phytoremediation of contaminated soil with petroleum hydrocarbons (PHs) in southern Quebec, Canada. Tolerance of Salix to various organic and inorganic contaminants has been well documented and can vary widely among genotypes. In this study, we compared the(More)
High concentrations of petroleum hydrocarbon (PHC) pollution can be hazardous to human health and leave soils incapable of supporting agricultural crops. A cheap solution, which can help restore biodiversity and bring land back to productivity, is cultivation of high biomass yielding willow trees. However, the genetic mechanisms which allow these(More)
Determining the appropriate wastewater dose to supply nutrients while avoiding overirrigation is essential for achieving more balanced above- and belowground development of the plants, thereby ensuring high filtering functionality of a willow vegetation filter system. Aboveground biomass and root development of a 3-year-old willow vegetation filter in(More)
