A total of 85 chromate-resistant bacteria were isolated from the rhizosphere of water hyacinth grown in Mariout Lake, Egypt, as well as the sediment and water of this habitat. Only 4 (11%), 2 (8%), and 2 (8%) of isolates from each of the environments, respectively, were able to tolerate 200 mg Cr (VI) L−1. When these eight isolates were tested for their ability to tolerate other metals or to reduce chromate, they were shown to also be resistant to Zn, Mn, and Pb, and to display different… Expand

The role of bacteria on heavy-metal extraction and uptake by plants growing on multi-metal-contaminated soils
TLDR
Results show that bacteria play an important role in increasing metal availability in soil, thus enhancing Cr, Pb, Zn and Cu accumulation by Z. mays and S. bicolor. Expand
Co-occurrence of functionally diverse bacterial community as biofilm on the root surface of Eichhornia crassipes (Mart.) Solms-Laub.
TLDR
The results of bacterial characterization indicated that this bacterial community is of multi-origin in nature and are assisting the host-plant in withstanding the adverse and fluctuating conditions of the Yamuna river by reducing the toxic effect of heavy metals, antibiotics and other xenobiotics. Expand
The exposition of a calcareous Mediterranean soil to toxic concentrations of Cr, Cd and Pb produces changes in the microbiota mainly related to differential metal bioavailability.
TLDR
Results showed that bioavailability is an important factor determining the impact of the heavy metals assayed, and even an inverted potential toxicity ranking could be achieved if their soluble fraction is considered instead of the total concentration. Expand
Phytoremediation potential of aquatic herbs from steel foundry effluent
Discharge of industrial effluents in aquatic environments is a serious threat to life due to toxic heavy metals. Plants can be used as cheap phytoremedients in comparison to conventionalExpand
The Role of Heavy Metals-Resistant Bacteria Acinetobacter sp. in Copper Phytoremediation using Eichhornia crasippes [(Mart.) Solms]
TLDR
The results showed that inoculation treatment enhanced the potency of the plant to reduce copper from  94 % concentration level in the medium without bacterial inoculation to 98.3 % and 97 % in medium inoculated with Acinetobacter sp. Expand
Enhanced disappearance of mesotrione and fomesafen by water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) in water
TLDR
Results show that uptake by plants combined with degradation by plant-associated bacteria may be the dominant process in the removal of mesotrione and fomesafen from water by plants. Expand
