I am a Brazilian Biologist interested in understanding the physiological mechanisms that underlie the Selenium hyperaccumulation in plants. I am especially interested in how the Stanleya pinnata (Brassicaceae) is able to distinguish Selenate (Se) from Sulfate and preferentially accumulates Se up to 0.5% of its dry weight.
