Cumulation of Cu, Zn, Cd, and Mn in Plants of Gardno Lake
Department of Environmental Chemistry, Pomeranian University in Słupsk, Arciszewskiego 22, 76-200 Słupsk, Poland
In the present paper there have been shown the results of research on yhe content of Zn, Cd, Cu, Mn and Pb in chosen plants of Lake Gardno.The biggest concentration of those metals has been observed in Potamogton natans and Elodea canadensis, on average Zn – 34.9, Pb -2.77, Cd – 0.62, Cu – 3.24 and Mn – 257.4 μg g-1. It has been found that the over-ground parts of the plants under analysis cumulate several times less of heavy metals than their roots. The determined enrichment factors enabled the researchers to state that Cu in the examined plants is of natural origin while Mn, Cd and Zn – of anthropogenic origin.
Key words: Heavy metals / aquatic plants / phytosorption
