Trace Element Concentrations in Tree Leaves and Lichen Collected Along a Metal Pollution Gradient Near Olkusz (Southern Poland)

Sciences, Institute of Environmental Sciences, Jagiellonian University , Gronostajowa 7, 30-387 Kraków , Poland 1 Beata Klimek The aim of the study was to assess the metal pollution in the vicinity of the

Substrate Factors Determine Roadside Vegetation Structure and Species Richness: A Case Study Along a Meridional Gradient in Fennoscandia

, Faculty of Biology and Earth Sciences, Jagiellonian University , Kopernika 27, 31-501 Krako ́ w , Poland 2 & Beata Klimek This study assessed the effects of road-related alteration of substrate, including

Drivers of temperature sensitivity of decomposition of soil organic matter along a mountain altitudinal gradient in the Western Carpathians

Mountain forest soils contain an important stock of carbon. Their altitudinal gradient can serve as a model for research on the potential risk of increased emission of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere, in a positive feedback of global warming. Using soil samples collected at three elevations (600, 900, and 1200 m a.s.l.) from five separate slopes of the Carpathian Mountains...

The Effects of Heavy Metals and Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons on Soil Bacterial Activity and Functional Diversity in the Upper Silesia Industrial Region (Poland)

Various inorganic and organic pollutants in industrial soils may adversely affect soil microorganisms and terrestrial ecosystem functioning. The aim of the study was to explore the relationship between the microbial activity, microbial biomass, and functional diversity of soil bacteria and the metals and total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPHs) in the Upper Silesian Industrial Region...

Functional diversity of soil microbial communities in boreal and temperate Scots pine forests

Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) is one of the most widespread conifer species in Europe, able to tolerate a wide variety of climatic conditions. The aim of the study was to compare the activity, functional diversity and community-level physiological profiles (CLPPs) of soil microorganisms in Scots pine forests of the boreal and temperate climatic zones. The soil samples were...

The Toxicity of Selected Trace Metals to Lecane inermis Rotifers Isolated from Activated Sludge

The aim of the study was to assess the toxicity of a range of trace metals to the rotifer Lecane inermis, a species tested as a potential biological tool to control activated sludge bulking caused by overgrowth of filamentous bacteria in wastewater treatment plants. LC50 values (concentration lethal to 50 % of individuals, mg dm−3) were ranked in the following order: Cu < Al < Fe...

Toxicity of Ammonia Nitrogen to Ciliated Protozoa Stentor coeruleus and Coleps hirtus Isolated from Activated Sludge of Wastewater Treatment Plants

We assessed the toxicity of ammonia ions to Stentor coeruleus and Coleps hirtus (Protozoa) isolated from activated sludge taken from two municipal wastewater treatment plants in southern Poland. Stentor coeruleus is a rarely occurring species in activated sludge, unlike the widespread Coleps hirtus. The mean LC50 values (concentration causing 50 % mortality) calculated for the 24...
