Phytoremediation, the use of vegetation for the decontamination of polluted soils, is a not very expensive strategy and has been presented as an approach to restore or attenuate and stabilize contaminated sites while bringing additional revenue to owners. In this context, this research work aims to study the phytoremediation response of three Miscanthus genotypes (two species ­ Miscanthus sinensis and Miscanthus floridulus, and a hybrid – Miscanthus × giganteus) to soils contaminated with zinc (450...
