During the last 15 years, a few reports have appeared in the literature in which it was stated that mammals, and particularly rodents, died sometimes when exposed to solar radiation for relatively short periods of time. That radiant energy in certain parts of the spectrum may be lethal for photosensitized animals is well known; but it is interesting to note that several authors were surprised when they observed the lethality of solar insolation for nonsensitized animals. The hitherto published work is based on essentially qualitative studies; none satisfied even elementary physical considerations. There are no adequate measurements of the power
