Bryophytes are broadly used as bioindicators. However, the internal distribution of accumulated elements in the moss tissue is little known. Sampling was carried out in The West Carpathians, Slovakia, in autumn 2012. Seven replicates have been used. The samples were analyzed by XRF Spectrometer Delta Classic. S, Pb, K, Ca, Cr, Mn, Fe, Cu, Rb, Sr, Mo, Ba and Zn were determined. For ordination analysis we used principal component analysis, statistical graphics system STATISTICA have been used for the correlation analysis and for analysis of variance. Results show that sulphur, zinc, chromium, manganese, molybdenum, kalcium and copper are preferentially accumulated in the capsula. While lead favors gametophyte, potassium and strontium prefer accumulation in sporophyte. Iron significantly accumulates in the more-year segments, while zinc in the stems. Copper, chromium and sulphur are accumulated preferentially in The Fatra Mts.
