Abstract

Certain plants accumulate selenium at levels that render them toxic. One of the principle groups of selenium-accumulating plants is the selenium-accumulating Astragalus. Reports in early literature suggest that selenium is the only toxin in these plants. Sheep fed Astragalus bisulcatus, a selenium-accumulating plant, had signs similar to those observed in locoweed poisoning, and the microscopic lesions from tissues collected from these sheep were similar to those of locoweed poisoning rather than selenium poisoning. This suggests this group of plants contains toxin compounds in addition to selenium.
