Potential for Accelerated Bioremediation and Restoration of Oil-Impacted Marshes through the Selection of Superior Oil-Tolerant Vegetation

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Report describing a study of the genotypes two plants (Spartina Patens and Spartina Alterniflora) that are tolerant to oil spills that have occurred in the coastal marshes of Louisiana. The research was to determine if these two plants could utilized for restoration and bioremediation of areas effected by oil spills. A plants tolerance to oil is determined by three factors: growth response and plant production, superior vegetative regrowth in soil effected by oil, and superior oil degradation potential.
