Short summary
Elevated atmospheric deposition in China is predicted to increase due to fast economic development. We quantified Hg dynamics on the forest field and measured fluxes and pools of Hg in litterfall, throughfall, stream water and forest soil in southwestern China, and found that forest field retention can prevent Hg from entering into the downstream aquatic ecosystems. However, any changes in the forest floor like deforestation or forestland degradation may strongly affect Hg budget of the region.
