Phytorem Listserv

This mailing list is for the discussion of research and development of phytoremediation (the use of plants to remediate contamination). Topics relevant to the list include:

  • uptake of ground water and contaminants by plants;
  • enhanced microbial activity in the rhizosphere;
  • fate and transport of contaminants in plant root zones;
  • phytotoxicity and revegetation in contaminated soils;
  • transpiration and its effect on ground water flow; and
  • fate of contaminants in plants after uptake.

The above list is not meant to be exclusive. Any topic relevant to the use of plants for the remediation of soils, sediments and ground water is appropriate.

PHYTONET - Phytoremediation Electronic Newsgroup Network

The Phytonet Newsgroup was developed to allow easy worldwide communications between scientists who work on problems related with Phytoremediation and Application of Plant Systems to Environmental Control. The Phytoremediation Electronic Network moderated by Nelson Marmiroli Phytonet Newsgroup is operated by the Department of Environmental Sciences, University of Parma, Italy.
