Abandoned sulfide mines represent one of the most important causes of pollution in the world. These environments are characterized by the absence of a real soil and plant life and are colonized only by pioneer microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. Mycelial fungi interact with mineral compounds through many direct or indirect strategies develop a significant biomass in soil and sequester significant amounts of metals. In this study, three fungal species (Penicillium brevicompactum, P… CONTINUE READING
