Modelling spatial patterns of correlations between concentrations of heavy metals in mosses and atmospheric deposition in 2010 across Europe
Background This paper aims to investigate the correlations between the concentrations of nine heavy metals in moss and atmospheric deposition within ecological land classes covering Europe. Additionally, it is examined ...
Effect of Current Velocity on Cd Accumulation in the Aquatic Moss Fontinalis antipyretica
With the aim of further standardizing biomonitoring techniques with aquatic mosses, the relationship between the velocity of water flow and cadmium (Cd) accumulation in transplants of the moss Fontinalis antipyretica was ...
Optimization of the Biomonitoring Technique with the Aquatic Moss Fontinalis antipyretica Hedw.: Selection of Shoot Segment Length for Determining Trace Element Concentrations
Bryophytes, including Fontinalis antipyretica Hedw., are widely used for biomonitoring aquatic environments. However, some methodological aspects, such as the fraction of shoot analysed, have not yet been standardized. The ...
Clonal in vitro propagation of peat mosses (Sphagnum L.) as novel green resources for basic and applied research
As builders and major components of peatlands, Sphagnopsida (peat mosses) are very important organisms for ecosystems and world’s climate. Nowadays many Sphagnum species as well as their habitats are largely protected, ...
