Abstract
In this paper, a fungal strain NT-1, which was screened from orchard soil co-contaminated with acidification and copper, was characterized by morphological, physiological, biochemical and molecular biological techniques. Through application of different concentrations of Cu(II), heavy metal stress was exerted on the strain, and the effects on mycelial biomass, colony diameter and mycelial morphology of NT-1 were studied. Additionally, the impact of different pH values, temperatures, initial Cu(II) concentrations and inoculum doses on the adsorption of Cu(II) by NT-1 was explored. The mechanism of Cu(II) adsorption by NT-1 was studied by adsorption thermodynamics...
