These data explores the hypothesis that the action of stressors changes the state of mineral content at different stages of leaves development in urban environment: • unfavourable site (US) - high pollution exposure, street and busy roundabout near Timisoara’s urban centre, heavy vehicular load. • favourable site (FS) - low pollution exposure, the site is not immediately exposed to pollution sources, park. The method is based on quantifying gravimetric (leaf dry weight - LDW, oganic weight in leaves - LO, ash weight in leaves - LA) and physiological (leaf mineral content - LMC, leaf organic content - LOC, leaf organic content / leaf mineral content ratio - LOC/LMC, leaf mineral deposition in tissues - LTDM) parameters. Acer platanoides L., Acer pseudoplatanus L., Tilia platyphyllos Scop., Tilia tomentosa Moench., Aesculus hippocastanum L., Aesculus x carnea Hayne, Taxus baccata L., Picea abies (L.) H. Karst, were chosen for this study.
