dc.description.abstractBackground and Aims In the global distribution of persistent organic pollutants (POPs) forests play a key role due to the forest canopy efect. In this study, mountain beech forests were selected to identify the level and distribution of selected POPs. Methods Organochlorine pesticides (OCPs) and polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) were ana lyzed by capillary gas chromatography with an elec tron capture detector (GC–ECD). Analysis of poly chlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) was performed by gas chromatography with a mass spectrometry detector (GC–MS). The polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) were analyzed by liquid chromatography with a diode array detector (HPLC–DAD). Results The total ∑20OCP concentrations in the soil from mountain beech forests at a depth of 0 – 40 cm ranged from 24.46 µg kg−1 to 331.11 µg kg−1, and at a depth of 40 – 80 cm from 15.80 µg kg−1 to 247.12 µg kg−1. The mass concentration for ∑6PCB ranges from 9.21 to 95.28 µg kg−1 in the surface soil layer and from 8.07 to 66.56 µg kg−1 in the soil sub layer. The total concentration of ∑7PBDE congeners measured in soil samples from mountain beech forests across Europe was from 1.38 to 29.68 µg kg−1 in the surface soil layer and from 1.01 to 53.31 µg kg−1 in the soil sublayer. The total concentration of ∑16PAH varied from 271.52 to 1154.52 µg kg−1 in the surface soil layer and from 318.95 to 1052.54 µg kg−1 in the soil sublayer. Conclusion The results of this study can serve as an important basis for international, national, and regional measures of environmental protection of beech forests from POPs pollutionsr
