DescriptionLimited amounts of information have been published on the environmental impacts of hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX) to terrestrial plant communities. RDX is one of the two high-explosive compounds used by the U.S. military (Davis 1998) and classified as a priority pollutant by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA). Millions of acres of land on military installations, as well as manufacturing, storage, and disposal sites, have been contaminated with RDX (Jenkins 1989). Therefore, environmental risk assessments (ERAs) are conducted to determine the potential environmental impacts of RDX on receptors. Research on the environmental impacts of RDX on terrestrial plants is needed to facilitate filling data gaps and decrease the level of uncertainty and costs associated with ERAs on RDX.
