Vitally Necessary Microelements in Herbs in Transbaikalia

V. K. Kashin
Keywords: iron, manganese, zinc, copper, molybdenum, cobalt, chromium, herbs, landscapes
Pages: 379-388


Content of vitally necessary microelements (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Mo, Co, Cr) in some medicinal herbs growing in the steppe arid, meadow landscapes with insufficient and normal wetting, and in meadow-bog landscapes on the soil of different types in West Transbaikalia was investigated.  The species and ecological specificity of the accumulation of microelements in the herbs was determined. Different levels of microelement content in herbs were established; the plant concentrating Fe, Mn, Zn, Cr were determined. Molybdenum, copper and zinc were ascribed to the elements of intensive absorption from soil, manganese and cobalt - of medium absorption, while iron and chromium were ascribed to the elements of weak absorption.
