In a previous investigation (States, MS Thesis, U. of Wyo., 1966) the seleniferous soils of the Spread Creek anticline, 1.5 miles east of the Elk Ranch reservoir were surveyed for the principal microfungal species. The influence of the element selenium on the composition of the fungal population was found to be distinctive when results were compared to a similar analysis of fungi in a nearby non-seleniferous soil. Several species isolated exhibited the capacity to reduce selenate and selenite to amorphous elemental selenium and volatile selenium compounds in agar culture. Project Number 178.
