Project: Accumulation of heavy metals in the food chains of deciduous forest ecosystems on contaminated sites.
- project duration
- 01-JAN-97 – 31-OCT-99
- On 5 sites within the Flemish Region, the uptake of heavy metals in different species of deciduous forests will be analysed. Special attention will be given to the effects on ecosystem processes. By using existing and further developed models for the processes, a more convenient forest management will be selected.
