Title of thesis:
Different tree species/hybrids were tested for their remediation potential on heap substrate from a former Uranium mining site near Ronneburg in Thuringia (Germany). Experiments were conducted under field as well as greenhouse conditions over a total time period of four vegetation periods. As regulating treatment factors combined microbial inoculations (ecto- and endomycorrhizal fungi, heavy metal resistant strains of bacteria) and substrate amendment (alkaline soil material) were applied.
