Metal bioremediation

Post by lthuong81 » Mon Oct 03, 2005 4:54 am

I'd like to ask some information about metal bioremediation. Which is more advantageous and more efficient between using plant and microorganisms for metal bioremediation?

Sincerely,
THUONG

it'll probably depend on the plant you're using but I'm guessing microbes are generally hardier than plants.

Mithril is right. In general, you can find a strand of bacteria that will do the job perfectly.. Leptotrix sp. ?
