Petroleum-polluted soils are a common disaster in many countries. Bioremediation of oil contamination in soils is based on the stimulation of petroleum-hydrocarbon-degrading fungal and microbial communities. A field study was conducted in a petroleum-contaminated site to find petroleum-resistant plants and their root-associated fungal strains for use in bioremediation of petroleum-polluted soils. Results and observations showed that the amounts of petroleum pollution in nonvegetated soils were… Expand
Screening for plants and rhizospheral fungi with bioremediation potency of petroleum-polluted soils in a Tehran oil refinery area
TLDR
This study conducted in a petroleum-contaminated area in a Tehran oil refinery to find petroleum-resistant plants and their rhizospheral fungal strains with bioremediation potency to show that the fungal variation in the oil-polluted area is higher than that in a non- polluted area. Expand
Phytoremediation Effect and Growth Responses of Cynodon spp. and Agropyron desertorum in a Petroleum-Contaminated Soil
ABSTRACT In order to compare the petroleum tolerance and phytoremediation ability of a native grass, Agropyron desertorum (desert Wheatgrass) with Cynodon spp. (Bermuda grass) in a petroleumExpand
Inoculation of seed-borne fungus in the rhizosphere of Festuca arundinacea promotes hydrocarbon removal and pyrene accumulation in roots
Background and aimsThe selective inoculation of specific hydrocarbon-degrading microbes into the plant rhizosphere offers a useful means for remediating hydrocarbon-contaminated soils. The effect ofExpand
Bioremediation of hydrocarbon-polluted soils for improved crop performance

Rhizosphere effect of Scirpus triqueter on soil microbial structure during phytoremediation of diesel-contaminated wetland
TLDR
Principal component analysis revealed that plant rhizosphere effect was the dominant factor affecting microbial structure, providing new insights into plant-microbe-pollutant coactions responsible for diesel degradation, and they were valuable to facilitate phytoremediation of diesel contamination in wetland habitats.

Evaluation of oil removal efficiency and enzymatic activity in some fungal strains for bioremediation of petroleum-polluted soils
TLDR
Fungi are important microorganisms in decreasing of petroleum pollution because they have bioremediation potency that is related to their enzymatic activities. Expand
Leucanthemum vulgare lam. crude oil phytoremediation
TLDR
Results showed L. vulgare could survive crude oil exposure and enhance reducing of crude oil from soil, and showed positive correlation between antioxidant compound concentration and crude oil contamination. Expand
Effect of bioaugmentation to enhance phytoremediation for removal of phenanthrene and pyrene from soil with Sorghum and Onobrychis sativa
TLDR
It can be concluded that Onobrychis sativa and sorghum are both efficient in removing pyrene and phenanthrene from contamination and bioaugmentation can significantly enhance the phytoremediation of soils contaminated with Pyrene and Phenanthrene by 22% and 16% respectively. Expand
