Abstract

The uptake of metals (Pb, Cu, Cd, Zn, Ni, Cr) by perennial ryegrass (Loliumperenne), grown on tailings situated in Central and NW Romania, was investigated by calculating the transfer factors (TFs). The mean TFs decreased as follows: TFPb>TFCd>TFZn>TFNi>TFCr>TFCu. The metal concentrations in tailings ranged between 19.9-2640 mg/kg Cu, 11.4-5156 mg/kg Pb, 9.10-5328 mg/kg Zn, 0.200-89.6 mg/kg Cd, 3.15-77.6 mg/kg Cr, 1.90-58.9 mg/kg Ni and in ryegrass between 2.25-58.6 mg/kg Cu, 0.129-4815 mg/kg Pb, 5.12-174 mg/kg Zn, 0.010-3.50 mg/kg Cd, 0.410-6.20 mg/kg Cr and 0.440-3.71 mg/kg Ni. The linear relationship between the metal content in ryegrass and tailings indicated a significant correlation for Pb and Zn. Metal concentrations in ryegrass differ in the three areas (Certej, Baia Mare and Aries) and can be used as a biomonitor forPb, Zn pollution.
