Press & News


Pilze gegen verstrahlte Böden

Press Release of 27.07.2016

Pilze könnten eine wichtige Rolle bei der Behandlung radioaktiv belasteter Böden spielen. In einem neuen Projekt wollen Wissenschaftler aus Sachsen, Thüringen und Niedersachsen untersuchen, ob und wie das Myzel – das fadenförmige Geflecht im Boden unterhalb des Fruchtkörpers von Pilzen – radioaktive Stoffe aufnehmen und zurückhalten kann. Dieses Potential soll nach Versuchen im Labor auch auf kontaminiertem Gelände rund um Tschernobyl getestet werden. Das Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung (BMBF) unterstützt das Vorhaben, das das Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) koordiniert, für drei Jahre mit rund einer Million Euro.
