The concentrations of elements (Al, K, Ca, Cl, Mg, Mn) in different compartments in a Pinus Sylvestris stand are analyzed using atomic absorption spectrometry and neutron activation analysis. Together with the biomass distribution several aspects are studied i.e. element relative mass and concentration distributions, inter-compartment ratios and mass and concentration related correlations between the elements. Finally, a simple box model is developed to give approximated inter-compartment transfer rates.
