Abstract: The aim of this study was to determine possible phytoaccumulation of metals (Ca, Mg, Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, Ni, Pb, Cd, Co, Cr) in the following plants growing on one specific serpentine site (mountain Goc, village Kamenica, central Serbia): Chrysopogon gryllus (L.) Trin.; Cotinus coggygria Scop.; Dorycnium pentaphyllum Scop. subsp. herbaceum (Vill.) Rouy; Melica ciliata L.; Potentilla argentea L.; Sanguisorba minor Scop.; Teucrium chamaedrys L. and Teucrium montanum L. The found metal concentration in the soil was in the descending order: Mg>Fe>Ca>Ni>Cr>Mn>Co>Zn>Pb>Cu>Cd. Concentrations of Ni and Cr in the investigated soil were higher then both. Also, according to the official regulation of Republic of Serbia, the concentration of Cd was above limit values. The highest concentrations of Mg, Mn, Pb, Co, and Cr were found in species T. chamaedrys. Zn, Ni and Cd domninated P. argentea, Ca in S. minor, Cu in C. coggygria, and Fe in species T. montanum. On the basis of these results the value for biological absorption coefficient for Ca was higher than one for all researched plants. The species Ch. gryllus and P. argentea showed the bioaccumulation potential of Zn. Our results indicate possible application of the studied plants, growing on soil formed on specific serpentine geological background, in the process of phytoaccumulation of metals.
Keywords: plants, metals, phytoaccumulation.
