Symbiontic and antagonistic microorganisms in ornamental plants By domenico prisa
eBook (PDF): $25.22
Recent discoveries show them as opportunistic, avirulent plant symbionts as well as parasites of other fungi. Some strains establish robust and long-lasting colonization of roots by entering into the... More > first epidermal layers. Root colonization frequently results in enhancing of growth and development, crop productivity or induction of resistance to abiotic and biotic factors. The association (interaction) microorganism/plant represents, especially for the first ones, an optimal system to satisfy its needs in terms of nutrition, water, protection to adverse environmental factors (water stress, radiation, extreme temperatures) and to competitors. Plants, therefore, represent a valuable habitat for many heterotrophic organisms and a source of nutrients.< Less

Effective Microorganisms (EM) nel processo di compostaggio By domenico prisa
eBook (PDF): $3.91
Il compostaggio è un processo biologico di tipo aerobico nel corso del quale i microrganismi presenti nell’ambiente attaccano e degradano la sostanza organica contenuta nelle materie... More > prime utilizzate nella preparazione della miscela avviata alla decomposizione. Si crea quindi un vero e proprio sistema vivente che in natura si evolve spontaneamente; esempi di decomposizione spontanea sono la trasformazione della lettiera del bosco o la maturazione del letame. Processi che sono però caratterizzati da tempi di trasformazione molto lunghi e da una certa discontinuità legata al variare delle condizioni ambientali. I microrganismi Em invece, grazie alle proprie caratteristiche peculiari, possono accelerare e migliorare il processo di trasformazione e stabilizzare il compost ottenuto.< Less

More > vivo, palpitante e vero. La fitodepurazione è appunto un processo naturale di depurazione delle acque reflue che utilizza le piante come filtri biologici, in grado di ridurre le sostanze inquinanti in esse presenti per azione diretta e/o per azione dei batteri che si sviluppano sui loro apparati radicali e rizomatosi o nell’ecosistema in cui vivono. I microrganismi EM comprendono una miscela di colture vive di microrganismi, aerobi e anaerobi isolati in natura da suoli fertili, che sono utilizzati durante la coltivazione delle piante e possono avere numerosi benefici sugli essere umani, gli animali e l’ambiente. In questo lavoro vengono presentati i risultati di una sperimentazione sulla riduzione della presenza delle alghe, in seguito al trattamento con Effective Microorganisms.< Less
