Contents of Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn, Pb, and Cd in 10 mushrooms species from Tokat, Turkey were determined by atomic absorption spectrometry. The results indicate that Fe, Cu, Mn, and Pb levels in the species Fomes fementarius were the highest with means of 3904+or-307 mg/kg, 54+or-4 mg/kg, 64+or-5 mg/kg, 2.7+or-2.0 mg/kg, respectively. The highest level of Zn was 122+or-11 mg/kg in the species Polyporus frondosus.
