In order to establish harmony between man and environment it is necessary to give a reliable and true diagnosis of the status, and discover the causes leading to greater endangerment of the nature. This statement gives birth to the objective of this paper, which is uppermost directed to finding out the existence and degree of load in the land and plants of certain heavy metal (Zn, otherwise present in a polluted atmosphere), and their accumulation in the National Park of Fruska gora. On the basis of results obtained in that way, certain appropriate measures of protection may be taken enabling preservation, improvement and protection ofthe National Park, environment in general, and above all, human health. The area of research is National Park of Fruska gora, that is, the section of M21 motorway, via Iriski Venac (Irig - lriški Venac - Paragovo) 12 km long.
