Abstract : The proposal is submitted in response to a verbal request from the U.S. Army medical research & development command. The proposed program is a continuation of the work begun under contract DAMD-17-75-C-5069. A portion of the proposed effort is uninterrupted continuation studies of experiments currently underway (E.G, plant growth & dimp lysimeter type) & the remaining portion is work to be initiated (E.G., Dcpd Lysimtere studies). Currently a select group of plants are being exposed to dimp & dcpd in a soil culture system to determine their effective levels as to phytotoxicity & bioaccumulation in this growth medium. Completion of this task, as well as the utilization of seeds from this task in currently underway, & to be continued, relates to the manner in which the contaminant compounds migrate through soil.
