This report presents an additional review of both chlordane and heptachlor, which is intended to present selected papers appearing in the literature from 1972-1975. The review indicates new and significant literature in the areas of fish, wildlife, distribution in the environment (air, soil, water), residues in crops and food items, and toxicology and epidemiology. The chemistry information for 1972-1975 was published as a part of a 1975 amendment to the 1972 reviews. This review summarizes rather than interprets scientific data studies in the process of updating the earlier reviews of chlordane and heptachlor. It is not intended to correlate data from different sources of present opinions on contradictory findings. The review covers all uses of the pesticides in the United States and should be applicable to future needs in the Agency. The review was researched and prepared by the criteria and Evaluation Divsion, Office of Pesticide Programs, EPA.
