Phytoremediation is a promising technology for the clean up of petroleum contaminated soil. In the present work the rhizosphere of Vicia faba, Zea mays and Triticum aestivum plants were tested for their abilities to stimulate the microbial degradation of soil pollutants in desert soil contaminated with 2.22.3% crude petroleum oil. The results showed that the roots of the three different plants were density associated with total bacteria, fungi and oil-degrading microorganisms, this is confirmed… CONTINUE READING
