Despite a great species diversity of insects, their The accumulation of dietary lead by insects was trace-element composition is poorly known (Butovskii, characterized through the coefﬁcient of biological 1984). The element redistribution in the forage plant– absorption (CBA) (Tomshin, 1973; Perel’man, 1975) phytophagous insect system has been studied to a much calculated by the formula CBA = C /C , where C and i p i lesser degree (Pakhomov et al., 2002). Among trace C are the concentrations of this element in insects and elements, heavy metals (HMs) are of special interest, the forage plant, respectively. since they are stable, can accumulate in the tissues of As
