Fifty six samples of edible, wide-spread species of higher fungi were analysed for copper-, manganese and zinc-contents. The average copper concentration of the samples is high (56,16 mg/kg dry mass) as compared to the green plants. Some groups of fungi (Agaricus and Macrolepiota species) are considerable copper-accumulators (until 226 mg/kg DM). Pronounced accumulation of manganese was reported in the case of Lepista nebularis and Pluteus atricapillus. The zinc-content of fungi (average: 104,1 mg/kg DM, between 7,71 mg/kg (Lepista nebularis) and 194, 3 mg/kg (Agaricus silvaticus) is relatively balanced, accumulation were not established.
