    Goat willow (Salix caprea L.) was selected in a previous vegetation screening study as a potential candidate for the later-stage phytostabilisation efforts at a heavily metal polluted site in Slovenia. The aims of this study were to identify the fungi colonising roots of S. caprea along the gradient of vegetation succession and to estimate their colonisation levels in relation to metal pollution in order to reveal its mycorrhizal status at the site. Additionally the metal accumulation capacity of S. caprea and photosynthetic pigments were analysed as indications of its fitness at our differentially polluted plots.
