Özet

Forty moss samples including four species were collected from near the Tokat-Amasya motorway in Turkey. Eight trace metals (Fe, Mn, Zn, Pb, Ni, Cr, Cu, and Cd) were analyzed using flame and graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry after microwave digestion. The metal concentrations in samples were found to be 714 - 1,206, 57 - 188, 12 - 111, 3 - 55, 10 - 30, 9 - 27, 4 - 23 and 0.3 - 1.2 mug/g for iron, manganese, zinc, lead, nickel, chromium, copper and cadmium, respectively.
