In addition to a complete bibliography on the occurrence, synthesis, photochemistry, biological activity, and mechanism of phototoxicity of phenylheptatriyne, new data on its phototoxicity in larvae of the mosquito Aedes aegypti, in Daphnia magna and in fish (Pimephales promelas) are presented. The apparent lack of target specificity suggests that additional research will be necessary before considering using PHT in field applications. © 1987.
