Rating accumulation of selected heavy metals (Pb, Zn, Ni, Cd) in the plant material beech wood communities – Dentario Glandulosae – Fagenionin protected areas of various human impact
The aim of the research was to present the cumulation of metals (Pb, Zn, Ni, Cd) in a forest stand of a forb-rich beechwood and evaluation of danger for researched ecosystems caused by metalize dust. The researches were taken in 10 differential anthropogenic areas: 9 nature reserves (“Segiet”, “Parkowe”, “Smoleń”, “Cisów”, “Wykus”, “Świnia Góra”, “Perzowa Góra”, “Zamczysko”, “Pazurek”) and 1 nature-landscape complex “Repty Park and Drama Valley”.
The metals were marked by Atomic Absorption Spectometry method. The results of the measurements of the samples taken from the plant material Fagus sylvaticaL.
The results of the researches show that the elements contents in researched areas from Świętokrzyskie Mountains do accumulate analyzed elements in extent that are suitable for plants. It can be accounted as a model for similar researches and confirmed metals concentrations could be concerned as natural and consequent of physiological trees’ requests.
