  • Effect of tourism, especially skiing activities, and urbanization on chemical and biochemical properties of soils in touristy town—Zakopane—was investigated. The concentration of heavy metals, nutrients, soil organic matter (SOM), dehydrogenase (DHA), invertase (IA) and urease (Ure) activities in soils from the town centre and out of the town centre was compared with the respective values of adjacent soils in protected areas (TNP). In order to evaluate a degree of contamination and risks of… CONTINUE READING
