Plant growth promotion induced by phosphate solubilizing endophytic Pseudomonas isolates.
(Frontiers Media, 2015)
The use of plant growth promoting bacterial inoculants as live microbial biofertilizers provides a promising alternative to chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Inorganic phosphate solubilization is one of the major ...
Profiling antibiotic resistance and electrotransformation potential of Ensifer adhaerens OV14; a non-Agrobacterium species capable of efficient rates of plant transformation.
(Oxford University Press, 2015)
Ensifer adhaerens OV14 underpins the successful crop transformation protocol termed Ensifer-mediated transformation but issues exist in regard to addressing the pleomorphic tendency of the bacterium in suboptimal conditions, ...
Lithium in the natural waters of the South East of Ireland
The South East of Ireland (County Carlow) contains a deposit of the valuable lithium-bearing mineral spodumene (LiAl(SiO3)2). This resource has recently attracted interest and abstractive mining in the area is a possibility ...
Global lithium sources-industrial use and future in the electric vehicle industry: A review
Lithium is a key component in green energy storage technologies and is rapidly becoming a metal of crucial importance to the European Union. The different industrial uses of lithium are discussed in this review along with ...
Induced plant accumulation of lithium
Lithium’s (Li) value has grown exponentially since the development of Li-ion batteries. It is usually accessed in one of two ways: hard rock mineral mining or extraction from mineral-rich brines. Both methods are expensive ...
