Manganese in beech leaves from the Upper Bavarian Tertiary Uplands sampling site and the Biosphere Reserve/National Park Berchtesgaden

Higher manganese levels in beech leaves from Scheyern

Manganese concentrations in soils can differ considerably between different soil types. Furthermore, anthropogenic activities may lead to enhanced environmental concentrations.
Manganese levels in beech leaves from the Bavarian Tertiary Uplands sampling site Scheyern are significantly higher compared to beech leaves from the BR/NP Berchtesgaden sampling site Gries oberhalb Schloss. This is most likely due to natural differences in the respective soils.
