The aim of study is to assess a calibration procedure for utilising some vegetal species as biomonitors in an integrated monitoring network. We compare heavy metals concentrations in the atmospheric participate collected on filters with the ones on vegetal samples. The sampling and the mass measurement of the atmospheric paniculate are performed by means of a low volume p-gauging sampler. For heavy metals biological monitoring, we have chosen two ryegrass species and we have developed a standardised culture cycle in which cultivation pots containing Lolium italicum and Festuca arundinacea are prepared. For evaluating heavy metals concentration we have utilised AAS techniques. Here we discuss the data collected in the first field survey (1997)

Abstract

The aim of study is to assess a calibration procedure for utilising some vegetal species as biomonitors in an integrated monitoring network. We compare heavy metals concentrations in the atmospheric participate collected on filters with the ones on vegetal samples. The sampling and the mass measurement of the atmospheric paniculate are performed by means of a low volume p-gauging sampler. For heavy metals biological monitoring, we have chosen two ryegrass species and we have developed a standardised culture cycle in which cultivation pots containing Lolium italicum and Festuca arundinacea are prepared. For evaluating heavy metals concentration we have utilised AAS techniques. Here we discuss the data collected in the first field survey (1997)
