The article presents the status report on the International Program's Collaborative Study On Plant Test Systems. In the first phase of this program, 16 laboratories submitted data on the genetic effects of EMS evaluated in three bioassays; i.e., Vicia faba root hair, Tradescantia micronuclei, and Arabidopsis embryo assays. In general, all participating laboratories obtained positive results with EMS, but some laboratories yielded data that showed significantly higher levels of spontaneous mutagenic effects, perhaps due to contaminants in the water or air. Research is in progress on evaluating the genotoxic effects of four additional chemicals. The first phase of this project is scheduled to be completed in December 1990. Upon the evaluation of the results of the first phase, recommendations will be made regarding the initiation of the second phase. (Copyright (c) 1991 Elsevier Science Publishers B.V.
