INFLUENCE OF THE DUMP SITES ON DEVELOPMENT OF SELECTED PLANTS IN THE ĽUBIETOVÁ AREA (SLOVAKIA)

Full text

Abstract: Natural installation and development of plant species such as Pinus sylvestris, Betula pendula, Quercus petrea, Salix fragilis, Mentha longifolia, Acetosella vulgaris, Juncus articulatus can be observed at the old mine waste dumps in the Ľubietová – Podlipa (Zelená Dolina Valley, Slovakia) area, specific to the local chemical conditions such as low content of essential nutrients and high content of heavy metals (Fe, Cu, As, Sb, Cd and others). Content of heavy metals and landscape features of the dump material are not appropriate for the vegetation development. The individual parts of the plant tissues (roots, twigs/stems, leafs/needles, flowers/fruits) are contaminated by heavy metals and tissues are damaged differently, respectively.

Keyword: mine waste dumps, heavy metals, contamination of plant tissues
