Abstract

The study area is located in Kirsehir I32-b3 section in Terzili village (Yerkoy-Yozgat). 10 samples were analyzed after collected from Euphorbia cyparissias plant which grows in this region and from related soil. Since As, Co, Fe, Ni, Ag and V element values on the stems of this plant collected from the study area, As, Cr, Co, Fe, Ni, Ag, Th and V element values on the leaves of this plant, and all the element values (except for Fe and Th) in the soil where this plant grows are higher than the suggested values. There was no linear relationship between pH values and Ag, Co, Cu, Ni, U, V and Zn values, while Pb and Th values in soil samples were correlated with pH values. At low pH conditions, the solubility of these elements is high. At the soil samples, higher positive correlation is seen between pairs element Al-Cr, Co-Ni, Cu-Fe and Al-Mn (p<0.01, p<0.05). Because of positive correlation 99% and 95% reliability between soil-stem (for As) and soil-leaf (for Cu, Mn and Pb), it has been determined that E. cyparissias plant for Cu and Mn (leaf) and Pb (stem) may be indicator plant.
