Abstract:Uptake and phytotoxicity of soil-applied sodium selenite in black cherry (Prunus serotina Ehrh.) and white ash (Fraxinus americana L.) seedlings were evaluated in a greenhouse study. For both species, foliar concentration of selenium was positively related to treatment level and elapsed time from treatment. Selenium toxicity was observed at all treatment levels in both species. Fifty percent mortality occurred at foliar Se concentrations exceeding 10 and 90 ppm dry weight basis in black cherry and white ash, respectively. At soil treatment levels > 10 ppm Se, dry weight basis, cherry diameter growth was reduced. Forest Sci. 32:806-811.
