The moss biomonitor method was used to assess the atmospheric deposition of heavy metals and other trace elements in the Southeast, North-East, North and Central parts of Kazakhstan within the framework of the UNECE ICP Vegetation program. Seventy-eight moss samples were collected in summer and autumn 2015, and thirty-five moss samples in summer 2016. 46 elements were determined by neutron activation analysis at the IBR-2 reactor in the Neutron Physics Laboratory of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR). For the prediction and assessment of the state of the environment in recent decades, methods based on bioindication are becoming increasingly widespread. This topic is relevant, since the assessment of air pollution is an important task of protecting the environment. The main goal of the work is to determine the degree of contamination by toxic elements with the help of moss-bioindicators of the regions of Kazakhstan.
KEYWORDS: biomonitoring, moss-bioindicators, heavy metals, radionuclides.
