Abstract Share this page

Fifteen metals (macroelements, heavy metals and trace elements) have been investigated using inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectrometry (ICP-AES) on 92 specimens of mushrooms collected in France, in the Paris region. Their levels and distributions are given. Taking in account the respective contents and bioaccumulation abilities, the data reveal that different mechanisms are involved depending on fungi species and genera besides physicochemical influences. Moreover, they suggest that the different elements might accumulate through various ways that are successively mentioned. Metabolic, toxicological and environmental significances are discussed.
