The main objective of the study was to assess the efficiency of phytoremediation methods implemented for 14 years on highly metal-contaminated soils. The different experimental strategies were plots planted with a tree mix or with a single tree species coupled or not with the use of fly-ashes as an amendment to limit metals mobility in soil. The breakdown of poplar litter on the four plots was monitored during 10 months. In parallel, colonization of litter bags by functional groups of mesofauna… CONTINUE READING
