THE USE OF CONIFEROUS PLANTS AS PHYTOREMEDIATORS OF TECHNOSOIL IN UKRAINIAN STEPPE
In the process of coal mining, particularly under conditions of operation of mines, significant disturbance and pollution of land occurs, being especially relevant for agricultural lands. Arboreous vegetation that grows in poly-elemental man-made anomalies conditions primarily serves as a mechanical barrier for aerogenic migration of metals. Soil and plant objects are involved in all processes of transformation and migration of substances occurring in the biosphere. The state of assimilation apparatus of arboreous plants can be used as an object of environmental monitoring, which is associated with assessment of their environment stabilizing role as a mediator of pollutants spreading into the environment. The purpose of this research was studying peculiarities of accumulation of elements of the heavy metals group in assimilation apparatus of coniferous tree species, which grow under conditions of mining rock.
