The content of mercury in the tissues of amphibians from Northwest Russia (Vologda region) varies within 0.001 to 0.370 mg/kg wet weight. The average values of Hg content in the organs and tissues of studied amphibian species decrease in the order: liver > kidneys > heart > intestines > muscles > skin. The mercury content in the tissues of genus Pelophylax is higher than that in the tissues of samples of genus Rana and species Bufo bufo. The content of mercury in the tissues of Rana spp. collected in the Western part of the Vologda region is significantly higher than that in samples from the Eastern part.
