In order to study the effect of mycorrhizal fungi (inoculated and non-inoculated) and heavy metals stress [0, Pb (150 and 300 mg/kg) and Cd (40 and 80 mg/kg)] on pot marigold (Calendula officinalis L.), a factorial experiment was conducted based on a randomized complete block design with 4 replications in Research Greenhouse of Department of Horticultural Sciences, University of Tehran, Iran, during 2012–2013. Plant height, herbal and flower fresh and dry weight, root fresh and dry weight and… Expand
The yield potential and growth responses of licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.) to mycorrhization under Pb and Cd stress
Based on the results, licorice with TF< 1 is not a hyperaccumulator plant but stabilizes Cd and Pb in root and has potential for further sustainable phytoremediation programs and most importantly considering the heavy metal accumulation in rhizomes and roots in accordance with world standards for medicinal and edible consumption.

The Combined Use of Beneficial Soil Microorganisms Enhanced the Growth and Efficiently Reduced Lead Content in Leaves of Lettuce (Lactuca sativa L.) Plant under Lead Stress
Two pots experiments were conducted, during two successive winter seasons of 2016/2017 and 2017/2018, to test the role of biofertilizer inoculations (arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi, AMF; BacillusExpand
Effect of inoculation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and blanching on the bioaccessibility of heavy metals in water spinach (Ipomoea aquatica Forsk.).
The experimental results showed that the water spinach species used in this study had a high capacity to accumulate HMs, and one major exception was to decrease the migration and accumulation of HMs in edible parts by the formation of P-HM complexes. Expand
It is concluded that the EDTA-AMF combination could be regarded a promising choice for phytoremediation of heavy metal-polluted soil. Expand
Enhanced Ni phytoextraction by effectiveness of chemical and biological amendments in sunflower plant grown in Ni-polluted soils
ABSTRACT A greenhouse study was conducted as a completely randomised design in a factorial arrangement to assess how inoculation of AMF (arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus) and application of EDTAExpand
Characterisation of growth and biochemical response of Onopordum acanthium L. under lead stress as affected by microbial inoculation
It is suggested that AMF and Pseudomonas bacteria could be effective bio-inoculants for enhancing the plant growth and Pb uptake by inhibiting the adverse effects of Pb in O. acanthium. Expand
Effect of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi on the Growth and Polyphenol Profile of Marjoram, Lemon Balm, and Marigold.
It is shown that AMF can provide different services for each herb and the quantity and quality of plant material could be improved by the application of optimized AMF inoculum. Expand
Evaluation of phytoremediation capability of French marigold (Tagetes patula) and African marigold (Tagetes erecta) under heavy metals contaminated soils.
It may be concluded that T. erecta was more efficient in extracting heavy metals from different heavy metals contaminated soils than Tagetes patula in remediating heavy metals under nine soils of different nature spiked with metals. Expand
An Insight into Phytoremediation of Heavy Metals from Soil Assisted by Ancient Fungi from Glomeromycota-Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi
Arbuscular Mycorrhizal (AM) fungi form mutualistic relationship with plant roots which improves plant growth and confers tolerance against many types of stresses, including heavy metals tolerance. AMExpand
Changes in gas exchange, root growth, and biomass accumulation of Platycladus orientalis seedlings colonized by Serendipita indica
Serendipita indica (formerly known as Piriformospora indica), a root endophytic fungus, exhibits multiple functions in some agricultural, horticultural, and medicinal plant species. We studiedExpand


The arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus Glomus mosseae induces growth and metal accumulation changes in Cannabis sativa L.
The possibility to increase metal accumulation in shoot is very interesting for phytoextraction purpose, since most high producing biomass plants, such as non-mycorrhized hemp, retain most heavy metals in roots, limiting their application. Expand
Effects of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi inoculation on arsenic accumulation by tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.).
Results confirmed that AM fungi can play an important role in food quality and safety and indicated that under As stress, proper mechanisms employed byAM fungi can protect tobacco against As uptake. Expand
Effect of different arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal isolates on growth and arsenic accumulation in Plantago lanceolata L.
Staining with dithizone indicated that AMF might be actively involved in As accumulation, and the mycorrhizal colonization affected also the concentration of Cd and Zn in roots and Pb concentration, both in shoots and roots. Expand
Solanum nigrum grown in contaminated soil: effect of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi on zinc accumulation and histolocalisation.
Findings indicate that S. nigrum inoculated with selected heavy metal tolerant AMF presents extracting and accumulating capacities, constituting a potentially suitable remediation method for Zn polluted soils. Expand
Zn, Cd and Pb accumulation and arbuscular mycorrhizal colonisation of pennycress Thlaspi praecox Wulf. (Brassicaceae) from the vicinity of a lead mine and smelter in Slovenia.
Significant hyperaccumulation of Zn, Cd and Pb in field samples of Thlaspi praecox Wulf was found, and low level colonisation with arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi of a Paris type was observed at the polluted site, whereas at the non-polluted site Arum type colonisation was more common. Expand
Mycorrhizae, biocides, and biocontrol. 2. Mycorrhizal fungi enhance weed control and crop growth in a soybean-cocklebur association treated with the herbicide bentazon
Results suggest that shifts in source-sink relations occurred both within each plant and between plants as a result of the selective stress imposed on cocklebur, which permitted a VAM-mediated flux of nutrients from weed to crop. Expand
Bioaccumulation and phyto-translocation of Nickel by Medicago sativa in a calcareous soil of Iran
Nickel is a heavy metal distributed ubiquitously in nature. It accumulates in soil as a result of human activities, including mining and industries development. It may be poisonous to plants, humans,Expand
Relationship between the status of arbuscular mycorrhizal colonization in the roots and heavy metal and flavonoid contents in the leaves of Juniperus procera
The relationship between AMF and heavy metal and flavonoid contents in the leaves may provide insight into the dynamics of mycorrhizal symbiosis in the future conservation of J. procera in the degraded areas of Saudi Arabian forests. Expand
A pot experiment was conducted to evaluate the effect of synthetic wastewater containing various concentrations of cadmium and chromium on Eucalyptus camaldulensis. Six month-old seedlings of E.Expand
Arbuscular mycorrhizal induced changes to plant growth and root system morphology in Prunus cerasifera.
It is concluded that AM fungal inoculation influenced processes in the root system at different levels, but not all effects were due to improved P nutrition or increased physiological age. Expand
