CONTROLLED BREEDING AND SELECTION OF RESISTANT SPECIES Aegagropila linnaei and Taxiphyllum Barbieri FOR PREVENTING PETROLEUM BASED POLLUTION IN FRESH WATER RESOURCES
Our project consists of four processes:
1. Cultivating and the reproduction of these species in stable conditions,
2. Preparation of an experiment which consisted of adding 50 and 100 μl of diesel to 200 ml clean fresh water. And adapting them to a polluted enviroment,
3. Taking measurements of the colonies which have adapted to diesel,
4. Lastly, the selection of the strongest and best colony in the polluted environment.
