||The PHYTOTOX database was analyzed to determine the taxonomic and geographical scope of information published on the toxicity of organic chemicals to terrestrial vascular plants. The data tabulated show the 20 most frequently tested chemicals, the 35 most often used plant genera and species, and the frequency of toxicity testing conducted on plants maintained under different growth conditions (greenhouse, cultivated field, wild, etc.). The information is discussed with regard to its applicability to environmental issues of concern. Examination of the data indicated that the influence of toxic waste compounds on plants is virtually unknown and that little research attention has been focused on the influence of chemical insult on the growth and development of wild plants.
