Mycoremediation researchers have continuously proven that fungi offer a variety of unique means for treating polluted soil and water systems. Over the last three decades, this relatively inexpensive practice has offered powerful means for individuals, communities, and whole countries to mitigate much of the environmental impact of the last two centuries. Mycoremediation is perhaps one of the most important applications of fungal cultivation. And yet, there is almost nowhere to study this science in depth.
In this course, you will learn how to actively engage in the field of mycoremediation and become an active contributor to its expansion.
— TOPICS COVERED —
- The history, current state, and limits of industrial and bio/mycoremediation
- Mycoremediation chemistry
- Soil science
- Advanced experimental design
- Whole systems and broadscale mycoremediation design
- Advanced soil and water testing strategies
- HazMat in mycoremediation
- Advanced fungal cultivation strategies
- Building soil fertility with endomycorrhziae and arbuscular mycorrhizae cultivation
- Fungal exudate analysis
- Fungi in water treatment
- Working with bacteria, plants, worms, and biochar in mycoremediation
- Detoxifying and aftercare support
- Mycoremediation activism
This course is ideal for researchers and (citizen) scientists seeking to apply the most effective mycoremediation strategies in any environment.
This course is an ideal complement for studies in soil science, bioremediation, permaculture, regenerative agriculture, ecology, water treatment, reforestation, and habitat rehabilitation.
