Science, 168, 3931, 544-554, 70 May
Research report on the severe ecological consequences of the defoliation program by American military forces in Vietnam. A significant fraction of mature trees in most forests are killed by single application of herbicides and almost completely killed by repeated sprayings. AAAS is urged to set up an international research program on the long-range effects of use of herbicides in Vietnam. (BR)
