Phytotechnologies involve the use of living plants to solve environmental problems. The plants are selected and implanted to achieve specific objectives, such as:

Air, water and/or soil remediation
Erosion and runoff control
Wind speed reduction
Heat reduction
Greenhouse gas sequestration

Phytotechnologies are numerous: they include the […]
