Abstract

A bacterial strain belonging to the genus Stenotrophomonas sp. isolated from the rhizosphere of the Se hyperaccumulator plant Astragalus bisulcatus is described. The isolate has been demonstrated to be able to reduce in aerobic conditions the very toxic oxyanion selenite to the non toxic elemental selenium.
