Biogeochemical and bioindication studies in the beech-pine forest catchment exposed to the moderate, but chronic industrial emissions in southern Poland were described. Balance of nutrients and pollutants was calculated, forest damage using plant indicators was estimated. All data show that the forest in the Ratanica catchment is deteriorated.
