Mengen und Spurenelemente: 12Arbeitstagung, Leipzig 12/13 Dezember 1991: 403-409
Relations between arsenic and selenium content of pasture grass and selected target organs of sheep in a copper contaminated area
One location (control) 35 km and 2 locations 5 to 15 km distant from a copper shelter were chosen to sample 180 plants and 130 tissues or organs from sheep for analysis of selenium and arsenic. As in pasture grass was significantly affected by distance from the emission, and was 100-50, 690 and 890 mg/kg DM for the 3 locations, respectively. Corresponding values for Se were 3.5 to 4.0 g/kg DM and 180 and 220 micro g/kg DM, respectively.
