 en Trace metal levels in edible wild fungi
Severoglu, Z.; Sumer, S.; Yalcin, B.; Leblebici, Z. & Aksoy, A.

Abstract

Metal levels (cadmium, cobalt, chromium, copper, iron, nickel, lead and zinc) of seventeen different edible wild fungi species ( Agaricus campestris check for this species in other resources , Calocybe gambosa check for this species in other resources , Coprinus comatus check for this species in other resources , Hericium coralloides check for this species in other resources , Hydnum repandum check for this species in other resources , H. repandum var. rufescens, Lactarius deliciosus check for this species in other resources , L. salminocolor check for this species in other resources , Macrolepiota procera check for this species in other resources , Pleurotus ostreatus check for this species in other resources , P. ostreatus var. columbinus, Ramaria aurea check for this species in other resources , R. stricta check for this species in other resources , Rhizopogon luteolus check for this species in other resources , Sparassis crispa check for this species in other resources , Suillus bovinus check for this species in other resources , Tricholoma terreum check for this species in other resources ) growing in Bolu-Turkey were measured by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrocopy. The obtained data were analyzed with "statistical package for the social sciences" statistics program. In addition, relation between metal concentrations in both soil and fungi samples were investigated. The highest metal concentrations in Bolu District, Turkey were measured in A. campestris (cadmium 0.270, chromium 2.735 and zinc 7.683), C. comatus (iron 160.12), M. procera (copper 15.990, cobalt 0.352 and nickel 3.645), R. luteolus (Pb 4.756) mg/kg dw (dry weight). As a result of the measurements, it was observed that metal uptake is related with the species of fungi and is also affected by pH and organic contents of the soil.
