Sažetak
In modern times urban pollution is a potentially significant risk to public health. Heavy metals are among the most dangerous substances in the environment and their accumulation is predominantly the result of human activity. In cities, heavy metals can enter the human body by inhalation, digestion, direct contact with skin (Wei and Yang, 2010). Phytoremediation, a practice of removing heavy metals from the air and soil by plants, has been in use for a long time. Plants can absorb various hazardous substances from the air and soil and thereby reduce the residual concentration of these toxicants in the environment. Good phytoremediators are plant species that can withstand high concentrations and are able to accumulate a large amount of pollutants. The phytoremediation ability can be increased by symbiotic mycorrhizal fungi. Mycorrhiza is a kind of symbiosis between microscopic fungi and plant roots, where mycorrhizal fungi provide increased absorption of nutrients to the plant via its roots. In case of phytoremediation this means an increased absorption of heavy metals. (Pongrac et al., 2009 ; Hildebrandt et al., 2007 ; Regvar et al., 2003).
