The present study concerns PCBs accumulation in soil at two depths as well as in Taraxacum officinale plants. An analysis of the distribution of different groups of PCBs congeners in plant and soil material revealed the highest content of hexa and hepta-CB fractions. Statistical test of pair comparison has revealed significant differences in accumulation(More)
Heavy metals (Pb, Cd, Cr, Hg, Mo, Zn, Co, Cu) content was determined in soil and plant samples collected in the different areas of the railway junction Tarnowskie Góry, as well as, near two main railway routes, i.e. Warsaw-Gdańsk and Katowice-Gdynia. In Tarnowskie Góry soil and plant samples were collected in four functional parts of the junction, i.e. the(More)
The aim of our work was to investigate the soil pollution by PCBs at railway surroundings i.e. two railway lines and railway junction Iława Główna. At railway junction the pollution by heavy metals (lead and cadmium) was also investigated. The soil samples collected on selected experimental areas were analysed by extraction and GLC. The results of our(More)
The aim of the present work is to present the history of the bioindication at a glance. The major stages of natural sciences in general and bioindication in detail, starting from the ancient times through middle ages and times of scientific revolution to the present time are shown, as well as the past and present examples of using living organisms(More)
Pine needles are one of the most commonly used bioindicators of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in the environment. Therefore, the main objective of the current research was the assessment of PAHs accumulation potential of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) needles in comparison to wild rosemary (Rhododendron tomentosum Harmaja) and birch (Betula(More)
The development of large-scale irrigation agriculture in the arid region of southern Kazakhstan, which was initiated in the 1960s under the former Soviet Union has resulted not only in salinization of the soil, but also in the process of soil dehumification. Dehumification process is registered at all arable lands, but in southern Kazakhstan, where the(More)
