Eight dispersants were tested in combination with free-acid erythrosin B and fluorescein to determine their toxicity. Solidogen LT-13 and Aquonium C-IV were most effective in combination with erythrosin B. Aquonium C-IV, Emulphor EL-719, Nekal BX-78, and sodium dodecyl sulfate were equally effective in combination with fluorescein. None of the dispersants alone was toxic. Four formulations of erythrosin B (free-acid dispersed with 8% sodium dodecyl sulfate, microencapsulated free-acid, aluminum…

TLDR
In order to gain greater understanding of the ecological significance of phototoxin-mediated plant defense against both insects and mammals, there is a need for more studies centered on natural associations.
