Abstract

Aluminium and other toxic heavy metals becoming water soluble in acidic forest soils decrease the absorbing capacity of root-systems of Quercus petraea primarily through the destruction of mycorrhiza-fungi. This causes the trees to die in a state of water and nutrient circulation stress. -from Authors
