Concentrations of Al, B, Ca, Cu, Fe, K, Mg, Mn, N, Na, P, S and Zn in the foliage of tree species (A. alba, P. abies and F. sylvatica) and in the humus from 25 localities of Carpathian Mountain forests (Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Slovakia and Ukraine) and concentrations of As, Be, Cd, Co, Cr, Hg, Li, Ni, Pb, Se, Sr, and V in A. alba are described. Additionally, the composition of individual particles in stomata of leaves were analysed and the suitability of foliage of forest tree species as bioindicators of environmental contamination with heavy metals is discussed.
