AbstractThe purpose of our work was to evaluate the seed germination ability of native species representing calamine populations of Alyssum montanum, Biscutella laevigata (Brassicaceae), and Dianthus carthusiano-rum (Caryophyllaceae). As substrata for germination, calamine substrate on which populations of examined plant species were grown in natural conditions, and horticultural substrate constituting a mixture of sand and garden soil were used. A. montanum and B. laevigata seeds demonstrated a high ability to germinate on calamine substrate, which was characterized by large contents of soluble forms of zinc (115.1 mg·kg-1), lead (0.91 mg·kg-1), and cadmium (3.12 mg·kg-1), and low water capacity (18.95% g/g). The seed germination abil-ity of calamine Dianthus carthusianorum ecotype was comparable on both studied substrata types.
