Original Abstract

Concentrations of Cd, Cu, Cr, Pb, Ni and Zn were monitored in the Svitava River (the Czech Republic) during April and September 2005. Total concentrations and total dissolved concentrations were obtained through regular water sampling, and the diffusive gradients in thin films technique (DGT) were used to gain information on the kinetically labile metal concentrations. Each measured concentration was compared with the corresponding average (bio)available concentration calculated from the mass of metal accumulated by the moss species Fontinalis antipyretica. The concentrations of Cd, Pb, Cr and Zn measured using DGT corresponded well with those obtained after the deployment of Fontinalis antipyretica moss bags in the Svitava River, but the concentrations of Cu and Ni did not. The calculated (bio)available Cu concentration correlated well with the total dissolved concentration of Cu, whereas no correlation was found to exist between the concentrations of Ni.
