AIR CONTAMINATION IN ŚWIĘTOKRZYSKI NATIONAL PARK ON THE BIOINDICATORS BASE BETWEEN 1991–2001
Katarzyna Sawicka–Kapusta, Marta Zakrzewska
Lichen Hypogymnia physodes (L.) Nyl. was used to compare the air pollution in Świętokrzyski National Park in 1991 and 1998 and to estimate the air pollution in the Base Station Św. Krzyż. The data obtained showed decrease in concentrations of most studied metals. Results from 2001 indicate still high amounts of Pb, Zn and S. Basing on Global Pollution Index and Sulphur Index, ŚwNP was estimated as a moderately polluted park.
