Trace metal levels in seven different wild-growing mushroom species from Kayseri, Turkey were determined by flame and graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry after microwave digestion. The contents of trace metals in the mushroom samples were found in the ranges, 13.4-50.6, 0.14-0.95, 0.75-1.99, 33.5-89.5, 14.2-69.7, 102-1580, 0.34-1.10, 1.72-24.1 and 0.47-1.51 ltg/g for Cu, Cd, Ph, Zn, Mn, Fe, Cr, Ni and Co, respectively. Results obtained are in agreement with data reported in the literature. (c) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
