Concentrations of heavy metals and plant nutrients in water, sediments and aquatic macrophytes of anthropogenic lakes (former open cut brown coal mines) differing in stage of acidification.
Strong positive correlations were found between concentrations of Co in water and in plants and between Zn in sediments and plants, indicating the potential of plants for pollution monitoring for this metal. Expand
Heavy metals in three lakes in West Poland.
Two lakes in West Poland were polluted with Zn, Cd, Cu, and Pb and partly with Ni and Hg, and the potential of plants for pollution monitoring for these metals was indicated. Expand
Comparison of the moss Pleurozium schreberi with needles and bark of Pinus sylvestris as biomonitors of pollution by industry in Stalowa Wola (southeast Poland).
The suitability of bark and pine needles for use in monitoring of serious heavy metal pollution was investigated and bark was a better accumulator of Cd, Cu, and Ni and an inferior accumulators of Mn compared to P. schreberi in the examined area. Expand
A comparison of native and transplanted Fontinalis antipyretica Hedw. as biomonitors of water polluted with heavy metals.
The results showed that the transplanted mosses accumulated significantly more Al, Cr, Cu, Pb, V, and Zn than the native mosses, and the concentrations of Co and Mn in all streams were significantly higher in the natives. Expand
Toxic metals in aquatic plants surviving in surface water polluted by copper mining industry.
Enrichment ratios of elements in plant tissue and in water were much higher than those between plant tissues and sediments, and enrichment ratios in mineral wastes in this area belong to the largest repository in Europe. Expand
Metals in some dominant vascular plants, mosses, lichens, algae, and the biological soil crust in various types of terrestrial tundra, SW Spitsbergen, Norway
Investigation of concentrations of metals in dominant species of vascular plants, mosses, lichens, algae, and in the biological soil crust (BSC), and topsoil from various types of tundra in the southwestern part of Spitsbergen, Norway indicates that mosses are more efficient bioaccumulators of Cd, Co, Cr, Cu,fe, Fe, Mn, and Zn than lichens.

Biomonitoring of Water Pollution with Elodea Canadensis. A Case Study of Three Small Polish Rivers with Different Levels of Pollution
Concentrations of Al, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Mn, Ni, Pb, Sr, V, Zn,N, P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe and S were measured in water, river bottomsediments and in Elodea canadensis sampled in threerivers from the OdraExpand
Self-organizing feature map (neural networks) as a tool to select the best indicator of road traffic pollution (soil, leaves or bark of Robinia pseudoacacia L.).
The bark of R. pseudoacacia seems to be a better bioindicator of long-term cumulative traffic pollution in the investigated area, while leaves are good indicators of short-term seasonal accumulation trends. Expand
Sanionia uncinata (Hedw.) loeske as bioindicator of metal pollution in polar regions
The principal component and classification analysis (PCCA) ordination revealed that S. uncinata from sites the most close, the most remote and on an intermediary distance from the seashore differentiated by the value of factor 1, which relates negatively to concentrations of Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Pb and V.

Diversification of Nitrogen Sources in Various Tundra Vegetation Types in the High Arctic
The stable nitrogen isotope mixing mass balance indicates the ratio between the actual N-loads acquired by plants from different N-sources in the Arctic tundra and the used methodological approach can be applied elsewhere. Expand
