About This Project

Mycoremediation is a method of bioremediation, in which fungi are introduced into an environment, in order to accelerate decomposition and improve the bioavailability of nutrients. Typically, species are selected based on targeted contaminants. A new approach to mycoremediation instead utilizes fungi that are already indigenous to the soil being remediated. This experiment seeks to prove / disprove whether the proliferation of native fungi can improve the fertility of soil.
