    Abstract

    Studies of the trace element content of human hair are of interest from several points of view. Since trace elements enter hair from the environment; either directly or via the diet, their concentration in hair may represent an indicator of environmental quality [1–3]. Further, since hair samples are fairly durable, those secured in an historical or archeological context may provide environmental information from times past [4]. Erratum to this paper appears in 21(2).
