    Description

    Foliage was sampled in June and late August-early September in 1988 and 1989 from the outer crowns of codominant red maple (Acer rubrum L.), northern red oak (Quercus rubra L.), and white oak (Q. alba L.) trees in forest stands along an atmospheric deposition gradient in north-central Pennsylvania. Leaf samples from approximately 480 trees were analyzed for concentration of macroelements N, P, K, Ca, Mg, and S, as well as microelements Al, B, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Na, Pb, Si, Sr, V and Zn. Foliar concentrations of Fe, S, and Sr were generally greater in the high deposition portion of the gradient. Concentrations of other foliar elements generally were not related to the spatial pattern of atmospheric input.
