Numerous linear and nonlinear correlations between the contents of alkaloids and mineral elements in the aerial parts and roots of greater celandine (Chelidonium majus L.) were revealed by means of correlation and regression analyses. These relationships became more significant with the transition from the sum of alkaloids to individual groups or fractions, which included compounds of similar compositions. Mathematical models describing the regulation of alkaloid metabolism by some mineral elements (Ba, Mg, Sr, Co, Cr, Zn, etc.) were developed in the analytical form. These models were tested in experiments with geochemical modeling using Zn.
