Many parts of jap Europe were polluted to an volume unknown within the West. 4 such websites - Kola Peninsula, northern Bohemia, top Vistula Basin, and Katowice - were pointed out and designated bills of the pollutants at those websites are given. the present prestige of using biomarkers in possibility review is given via numerous scientists from NATO international locations. 4 operating teams, comprising scientists engaged on the polluted websites and western scientists with services in biomarkers, study using biomarkers to evaluate the environmental health and wellbeing of every of those components and make tips on the longer term path of remedial motion in those areas.

In tenns of heavy metal content the soils of the Krak6w region are mostly classified as unpolluted. Soils with moderate cadmium, zinc and lead contamination occur in small areas, mainly in western part ofvoivodship and within large cities . The Krak6w voivodship is one of the least afforested regions in the country (16% of the area). 4% of the area), the oak Quercus pedunculata (14%) and the beech Fagus sylvatica (12%). The forests of the Krak6w voivodship are currently classified as a zone of average and moderate alteration.

But the microbiological status of the soil had not recovered even after 7 years of exposure to "clean" conditions. When polluted by heavy metals soils become phytotoxic [5,6]. The growth of plants is depressed, their elemental composition is changed and ash, heavy metal and nitrate contents rise. The tendency for increasing contents of total and protein nitrogen and the sum of amino acids is found (Table 2). This change may be a defense mechanism, as these organic compounds form chelates with metals that are less toxic than free ions.
