A review was conducted of a DPG monitoring network which is designed to establish baseline erythrocyte acetylcholinesterase (AChE) levels in the fauna of West Central Utah, and to evaluate the suitability of using livestock and wildlife as biological monitors for organophosphorus contaminants. Wildlife species sampled during these DPG efforts included the antelope ground squirrel, the ORD Kangaroo rat, the deer mouse, and the black-tailed jackrabbit. Individual blood samples from these wildlife species as well as samples from cattle and sheep were collected and analyzed for red cell AChE activity. The analytical method employed was based on the Warburg manometric technique. Results indicate that the range of red cell AChE activity values for both livestock and wildlife species is sufficiently compact to allow observation of the depression of enzymic activity that would result from organophosphorus exposures.
