Broad overview of phytoremediation

Plant biotechnology for the removal of organic pollutants and toxic metals from wastewaters and contaminated sites - EU COST ACTION 837 project

NebGuide describes bioengineering techniques for hillslope, streambank and lakeshore erosion control. Tips for a successful bioengineering installation and demonstration project are presented

Dendroremediation of explosives. This website looks at the suitability of several tree species including poplar and willow for the remediation of TNT and other explosives.

Brownfield Remediation. This is a list of publications, some of which can be downloaded, by the team led by Nick Dickinson at Liverpool John Moores University in the UK. The group undertakes research and practical application of the use of trees, including willow and poplar in the rehabilitation of brownfield and contaminated land.

Online Phytoremediation Decision Tree . This website gives basic direct guidance on whether a site might be suitable for phytoremediation based on broad site conditions and contaminant type.
