  • The chapter summarizes research carried out on the role of mycorrhizal fungi in phytoremediation of heavy-metal-rich wastes in temperate regions. Symbiotic fungi are an important component of soil microbiota, especially under harsh conditions. Properly developed mutual symbiosis enhances the survival of plants in polluted areas by improving nutrient acquisition and water relations. In addition, mycorrhizal fungi were found to play an important role in heavy metal detoxification and the… CONTINUE READING
