Four aquatic species (Typha domingensis, Lemna obscuara, Hydrilla verticillata and Crinum americanum) were tested for their ability to sequester selenium in liquid culture systems. Depending on the species, 65-100% of selenium was removed from water when selenium was present at 100 ppm. at greater concentrations, plant growth was inhibited.
