Abstract:

In conjunction with an Air Force program of testing defoliation spray equipment on Eglin Air Force Base Reservation, Florida, a histological study was undertaken to determine if any structural changes were evident in a plant species Yucca filamentosa L. found occurring on the one-square-mile grid of Test Area C-52A. This grid has received repetitive applications of operational quantities of the military defoliants Orange and White. The results of the study indicated no apparent differences in the formation of histological structures in samples obtained from an area that had received repetitive applications of military defoliants and in those samples obtained from an area which had not received the defoliant applications. Both samples followed the normal structural development for this species. Author
