    Hola MistakingFlyESP – I will pass your question on to the 4 panelists from "Environmental Healing through Phytoremediation – Chapter One" – but to start with I suggest you read Patrick Carey's excellent article "A Guide to Phytoremediation: A Symbiotic Relationship with Plants, Water & Living Architecture": http://www.greenroofs.com/content/Phytoremediation-A-Symbiotic-Relationship-with-Plants-Water-and-Living-Architecture.htm

    It has TONS of information, links, plant lists, etc.

    Hello, I was wondering if you could tell me where can I find information about phytoremediation. I mean, exhaustive information: phytoremediation projects already finished (like the one in Aznalcollar, here in Spain), information about that projects, which species are used, etc. Any information will be a great help! Thanks!
