Problems of Geography, 2017, Vol.1-2, DOI: https://doi.org/10.35101/PRG-2017.1-2.4
This paper presents the biogeochemical peculiarities of the landscapes in South Pirin (Southwestern Bulgaria) which are examined based on samples of selected plant species: Pistacia terebinthus, Juniperus oxycedrus, Fagus sylvatica, Cytisus sp., Sambucus racemosa, Sorbus aucuparia, Tussilago farfara. An analysis of the chemical elements Cu, Zn, Pb, Mn, Co, Cr and Ni was made. A comparison with the local soil geochemical background was made. The results were compared with similar research in Bulgaria. The biological absorption coefficient Ax was used to analyze the results.
