The article examines the level of trace elements (Fe, Mn, Zn, Cu, Sr, Rb) and macroelements (K, Ca, P, S) in a range of higher aquatic plants of lakes of the Big Solovki Island. We characterized biogeochemical features of macrophytes of different ecological groups - hygrophytes (Carex acuta L., Comarum palustre L.), hydrophytes (Potamogeton perfoliatus L.) and aerogidatophytes (Nuphar lutea (L.) Smith.) growing in the studied lakes. Coefficients of biological accumulation of chemical elements of the studied plants were discussed. The obtained data regarding the content of trace elements and macroelements in the investigated macrophytes are compared to element composition of aquatic plants of lakes in the Leningrad region.
