Mineral Substances in Stem Wood Tissue of European Beech (Fagus sylvatica L.)

Anna-Mária Szá¡sz-Len, Liviu Holonec, Doru Pamfil


Mineral substance concentration was studied in stem wood tissue of European beech in different populations. Elemental analysis and atomic absorption spectrophotometry (AAS) techniques were applied for quantitative determination of mineral elements. The results indicate similar macro nutrient content in wood samples, except Ca. Comparisons with similar studies on European beech stem wood macro nutrient content provided similar values.
