Abstract : The report for the period from February 1 to June 15, 1974 contains the results of research efforts of 4 projects concerned with defining the environmental effects of potential environmental contamination resulting from the use of certain Air Force materials. The 4 projects use different organisms as means of assessing effects. Project I uses the higher plants, the gymnosperms and angiosperms. Project II uses fish and aufwuchs. Project III utilizes unicellular algae and Project IV uses the eggs, embryo and larvae of the leopard frog. Materials being evaluated include hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, RJ 4, RJ 5, JP 4, N phenyl-alpha-naphthylamine, p,p' dioctyldiphenylamine, octyl-phenyl-alpha-napthylamine. Techniques for exposing organisms to these substances are discussed and the results of such exposures are presented.
