Bryomonitoring of element deposition in three walleys in the Tatra Mts (Slovakia) based on X-ray spectrometry
The moss species Pleurozium schreberi we have chosen for bioindication, this moss have often been used as imission bioindicator. Three different oriented valleys (transects) have been selected: South facing Velická dolina valley, North facing Bielovodská dolina (including Litvorová dolina valley) and East facing Žabia dolina valley. It turned out that the effect of the Silesian and Polish metallurgy and domestic Ferrous-Alloy Mills Istebné is essential to the pollution in the investigated area. In all three transects lead correlates with altitude. Similar to the correlations are North-South transects (Transects A, B), where apart from Pb-altitude correlation, correlate also: Fe-altitude; Ti-Pb; Ti-Ba; Fe-Pb; Ba-Sr; Ti-Ba. Transekt (C) facing East is quite different.in correlations.
