Differences in heavy metal inputs in beech and Norway spruce forests at exposed and sheltered sites

Differences in heavy metal inputs in beech and Norway spruce forests at exposed and sheltered sites

VDI Berichte (560): 439-456

Studies were made at 4 sites in central W. Germany in 1983 on heavy metal contents of bulk precipitation, stand deposition (throughfall and stemflow), and forest litter. Heavy metal input as dry deposition was measured indirectly as soil input (the sum of contents in deposition below canopy and in forest litter). In bulk precipitation, annual deposition rates were: 7-13 mg/msuperscript 2 Pb; 0.16-0.24 mg/msuperscript 2 Cd; and 0.22-0.44 mg/msuperscript 2 Cr.
