Zum Spurenelementgehalt von Fichtenstandorten im Tharandter Wald und Osterzgebirge. (Trace element content of spruce sites in the Tharandt Forest and eastern part of Erzgebrige)

For forest sites situated on various basic rocks in the eastern parts of the Ore Mountains the total content of a greater number of trace elements in the mineral soil and A. horizon is reported. The values of the nutrient level K (eutrophic) correspond approximately to the "medium" contents in soils predominantly used for agricultural purposes. Brown earths over olivine-nephelinite, gneiss, and phyllite are richer in trace elements than podzols over quartz porphyry. But even in the case of brown earth rich in Cu and Zn and lying an olivine-nephelinite tolerable contents are not exceeded. The partially richer accumulation of Pb in the mineral soil of the Tharandt Forest is conditioned mainly by geological and petrographical factors and to a lesser degree by immissions. For spruce sites not influenced by short-distance immissions preliminary skeleton values for trace elements in the L-, F-, H-, and A-horizons are indicated. The humus profile of spruce sites is suitable for evaluating the anthropogenic accumulation of trace elements in Mittelgebirge landscapes.
