These criteria seem valid for Se and the growth of P. cinctum and are for the present only tentatively suggested for some of the other algae in this investigation. The bioactivity of Se concerning the response of P. cinctum (Figs. 1-2) indicates selenite-Se and organic Se to be more readily assimilable than selenate-Se. Maximum content, measured chemically, ofSe in P. cinctum, cultured in medium 2 XL 16 (Table I) is up to 150 X 10- 6 ng . cell-I (M. Remberger, pers. ).
