Influence Of Mineral Element Contamination On Pinus L. Species In Natural Park ‘podilski Tovtry’


І. О. Odukalets, М. М. Musienko

It was proved that the condition of pine population could depend on contamination of mineral elements in soil, on assimilation ability of plants, on plant age, gradient of slope, and soil type. The results of our investigations showed that P. sylvestris could grow ven in unsuitable conditions. The dry trees of population have stem with diameter of 16-18 cm. We suggested that mainly old trees were damaged by unfavorable factor. Our hypothesis that soil calcium could influence the living condition of pines was not confirmed.
