Bioremediation Kansa B



H. Mallede and M.K. Banks, Civil Engineering, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506 Microbial functional diversity was assessed using BIOLOG for hazardous organic and heavy metal-contaminated soil. The purpose of this study was to compare microbial community structure in vegetated and unvegetated contaminated soil. Soil samples were taken and analyzed from several phytoremediation projects. Preliminary results indicate that functional diversity is higher in the rhizosphere of contaminated soil when compared to non-rhizosphere contaminated soil.

Key words: phytoremediation, microorganisms, diversity, bioremediation
