Abstract

Abstract Investigations were carried out to explore how much Cd, Cs, Hg, Se, Ni and Pb trace elements cultivated mushrooms take up of the amount previously put into their soil. The intake of elements differs considerably to the extent that: on the one hand, mushrooms might be observed to behave practically as a filter for Mn, Ni and Pb; and on the other hand they accumulate Hg, Cd and Cs. The way manganese gets into the fruit body was also investigated and, in addition, the element effect on the increase of production was measured. All the experiments were carried out in the knowledge of the significant role manganese has in the decomposition of cellulose.
