This subject investigates the transfer of heavy metals from a contaminated substrate into the food chain and the demographical and genetic effects of these on populations of woodlice, spiders and collembola. These phenomena are traced by means of fiels observations and laboratory experiments. The obtained results will be translated into the level of contamination of an ecosystem.
