Studies were begun early in 1958 on a 3,600-acre area in Wilcox County, Alabama, to determine the effects of aerial applications of granular formulations of the insecticides heptachlor and dieldrin on certain species of wildlife. These studies by biologists from the Alabama Cooperative Wildlife Research Unit of the Alabama Polytechnic Institute are still in progress.
