5167RE: [vernalpool] Herbicides and Vernal Pools
- Jul 7, 2014
It’s true there is not much published on this subject, but Michelle Boone and Bruce Pauli have written a succinct review of chemical contaminants in vernal pools with a section on herbicides. It’s a book chapter in: Calhoun, A. and deMaynadier, P. (editors). 2008. Science and Conservation of Vernal Pools in Northeastern North America. CRC Press, FL.
Good luck … phillip

Not sure about "conspiracy theories,” but introducing any toxins to a sensitive area such as a vernal pool is logically going to wreck havoc on its system. Yes, amazing that there are no substantive studies on this topic.
