Grodzińska, Krystyan ; Godzik, Barbara ; Bieńkowski, Piotr (1999)

Concetrations of 16 elements (Al, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Pb, Zn, C, N, S, P, Ca, Mg) were determined in the lichen Cladina stellaris (Opiz) Brodo collected from 26 localities on the Kola Peninsula. Concentrations were higher closer to the emission sources. In Arctic regions affected by local emissions, lichens can be recommended as sensitive indicators of atmospheric pollution.
