During the summer and fall of 1970, a study of fluoride accumulation and its pathological effects on many species of flora and fauna was carried out in the areas of Columbia Falls, Montana, and Glacier National Park. Results of fluoride analyses of other vegetation of species foraged by animals (e.g., grasses and woody shrubs) demonstrated that fluoride accumulation occurs in nonconiferous species as well. Samples of grasses from seven sampling zones, representing more than half of the study area, yielded fluoride concentrations greater than those from control areas by a factor of 2 or more. This phenomenon of increasing fluoride concentrations in the food chain was observed in all parts of the study area where above-normal concentrations of fluoride were accumulating in vegetation.
