Avoidance of selenium-treated food by mallards; 1990; Article; Journal; Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry; Heinz, G.H.; Sanderson, C.J.

Summary

Adult, male mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) were given a choice between a control diet and a diet containing 5, 10 or 20 ppm selenium as selenomethionine dissolved in water and mixed into the diet. At 10 and 20 ppm, selenium-treated diets were avoided. Avoidance appeared to be caused by a conditioned response, probably to illness caused by the selenium and not to an aversion to the taste of the selenium.
