Abstract

Our environment is significantly impaired due to pollution and overexploitation of natural resources. All natural ecosystems have been greatly damaged. Restoring the natural functions of ecosystems is a priority for now. Wetland macrophytes, such as higher plants, play an important role in the recovery process, particularly in terms of biological treatment of water run-off from agricultural land. The phytoremediation is the main method of recovery in this context. Phytoremediation is ability of plants to receive and accumulate chemicals from environmental pollution and to improve its properties. The goal of paper is to verify the response of one species of wetland macrophytes Typha angustifolia L. on eutrophic conditions and to assess their use in the restoration as phytoremediants. To meet the targeL container experiments were conducted in greenhouse conditions with a differentiated mineral nutrition. Plants species Typha angustifolia L. is able to accumulate the major macro elements (nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium) and use them to create the above-ground and below-ground biomass. Typha angustifolia L. is also hyperacumulator of Zinc (Zn). It has high resilience and ability to vegetative propagation. Typha angustifolia L. forms a large amount of biomass in the eutrophic and oligotrophic conditions and therefore has a secondary potential as an alternative energy source.
