Restoration of a Mediterranean forest after a fire: bioremediation and rhizoremediation field-scale trial.

Pizarro-Tobías P, Fernández M, Niqui JL, Solano J, Duque E, Ramos JL, Roca A - Microb Biotechnol (2014)

Bottom Line: After fires, soils are more likely to erode and resilience is inhibited in part by the toxic aromatic hydrocarbons produced during the combustion of cellulose and lignins.After 8 months of monitoring soil quality parameters, including the removal of monoaromatic and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons as well as vegetation cover, we found that the site had returned to pre-fire status.The results obtained in this study indicate that the rhizoremediation strategy could be presented as a viable and cost-effective alternative for the treatment of ecosystems affected by fires.

Principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) constructed using FASTUNIFRAC software (Hamady et al., 2010) to compare sample groups from phylogenetic distance-matrix, determining similarity between or differences among pristine soil (P), bulk burnt soil (B) and rhizoremediation treatment (R) at two different times of the assay 1 month (autumn) and 6 months (spring). 3D image obtained through EMPeror software (Vazquez-Baeza et al., 2013).

Mentions: A principal coordinate analysis (PCoA) was performed to compare genetic distance matrix between groups (Fig. 3). Statistical differences were observed in the phylogenetic composition of microbial populations between burnt and pristine soil, with intermediate values observed for sites that were treated using Rhizoremediation. Moreover, Control burnt and Control pristine soil microbial populations showed season-induced variations while the Rhizoremediation ones remained quite unaltered through sampling times.
