Abstract: The results of biomonitoring study by Bryophytes carried out on the chestnuts woods of the volcano Etna are reported. The Bryophytes are employed as bioaccumulators of trace elements, with the aim of evaluating the state of helft of investigated areas. The data obtained by bioaccumulation method are compared with those of the bioindication method using BBI values and other ecological and biological parameters reported in others papers carried out in the same investgated area.
