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
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.

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.

Heavy metals in aquatic bryophytes from the Ore mountains (Germany).
This investigation indicates that the studied aquatic mosses reflect part of the pollutant loadings released in the past in the Erzgebirge area of which remnants are still present in the environment. Expand
Short shoots of Betula pendula Roth. as bioindicators of urban environmental pollution in Wrocław (Poland)
Concentrations of the elements Ca, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, N, Ni, P, Pb and Zn were measured in leaves of Betula pendula from the polluted areas of Wrocław, Poland and from a control site,Expand
Self-organizing feature map (neural networks) as a tool in classification of the relations between chemical composition of aquatic bryophytes and types of streambeds in the Tatra national park in
The SOFM and PCA ordinations yield identical classifications of bryophytes from the Tatra mountains streams, which yielded distinct groups of aquatic brysophytes growing in streams flowing through different types of rock, groups which differed significantly in the concentrations of certain elements.

Bioindication of Trace Metals in Brachythecium rutabulum Around a Copper Smelter in Legnica (Southwest Poland): Use of a New Form of Data Presentation in the Form of a Self-Organizing Feature Map
The SOFMs accurately represented the least polluted, moderately polluted and severely polluted sites, reflecting the distribution of metals that is typical of the smelter area, caused by the prevailing westerly and northerly winds. Expand
Factor analysis of the elemental composition of Pteridium aquilinum from serpentine and granite soils as a tool in the classification of relations between this composition and the type of parent rock
Concentrations of the elements N, P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, Ni, Cr, Co, Mo, Cd and Pb were measured in serpentine and granite soils and in the fern Pteridium aquilinum sampled from the ŚlężaExpand
Decreasing concentrations of metals in Sphagnum mosses in ombrotrophic mires of the Sudety mountains (SW Poland) since late 1980s.
Differences between hollow/hummock sites were more important than species-specific abilities of Sphagnum mosses to accumulate metals as bioindicators of metal pollution in 100 km part of the Sudety mountains influenced by the former Black Triangle Region. Expand
