Interspecific differences in the bioconcentration of selenite by phytoplankton and their ecological implications

  title={Interspecific differences in the bioconcentration of selenite by phytoplankton and their ecological implications},
  author={Stephen B. Baines and Nicholas S. Fisher},
The concentration of Se in algal cells is a primary determinant of Se tissue contents in higher level consumers. Differences in the ability of algal species to concentrate selenite and variability in ambient selenite concentrations may be important determinants of algal Se contents. We compared uptake of 75Se-labeled selenite by 14 algal species at 2 environmentally relevant selenite concentrations. Se content per unit cell volume (Se/Vc) varied by almost 4 orders of magnitude when algae were… CONTINUE READING
