UNLABELLED Yellow-cracking Bolete (Xerocomus subtomentosus) mushrooms and soil were collected from Noteć Forest--a large forested enclave in western part of Poland. Mercury was determined by cold vapour atomic absorption spectroscopy and the other elements by inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectroscopy. K, P, and Mg were particularly abundant,(More)
In the article are reviewed and discussed available data on arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury content of the fruiting bodies of king bolete. The values of cadmuim concentration of the fruiting bodies of king bolete collected from the areas unpoluted with metals and metaloids in Poland and other European countries usually are greater than an actual(More)
This study investigated the Hg concentrations in Yellow-cracking Boletes Xerocomus subtomentosus mushrooms and beneath soils collected from the wild at twelve sites across Poland. This mushroom species has some potential to bioconcentrate Hg in the fruiting bodies, and the amount of Hg sequestered, depending on geographical location, can pose health risk to(More)
In the article are reviewed available data on arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury contents of the fruiting bodies of Bay Bolete in Europe. Cadmium and lead contents of Bay Bolete at the sites unpolluted with those elements reaches up to 5 and 20 mg/kg dry matters, respectively (up to 0.50 and 2.0 mg/kg fresh weight), i.e. is a much more greater when compared(More)
Perfluorochemicals (PFCs) are wide-spread contaminants on a global scale. There is an increasingly growing number of data on environmental occurrence, sources and risk of PFCs to humans and aquatic biota in highly industrialised countries but inadequate information exists for less industrialised regions. In the present study, concentrations and profiles of(More)
