Phy2SUDOE. Advancing in the application of innovative phytomanagement strategies in contaminated areas in the SUDOE area
The collaboration of different entities in Southwest Europe has allowed us to continue to advance in a better understanding of the climatic and environmental setting of this part of the world and has facilitated the construction of a shared knowledge of soil and its management through alternative nature-based techniques that are more respectful of the environment.
We have seen that there are several key factors for the success of phytomanagement: the application of good practices, the maintenance of phytomanagement over time, biomonitoring, and water management, among others.
After a process requiring patience, ecosystems have been recreated with multiple associated services, including biomass production, pollution control, and stimulation of soil organisms for efficient nutrient cycling and carbon sequestration.
All this new knowledge has been made publicly available so that, in the future, other projects and research can be used as a basis for continuing to contribute to improving the world we live.
