Three areas of research needs are identified in translating laboratory data to the field. They are (1) an assessment of the efficiency of existing environmental fate mathematical and physical models to simulate field conditions, (2) an evaluation of the utility of single species laboratory toxicity tests to accurately assess environmental effects of contaminants, and (3) an assessment of the relative sensitivities of ecological functional processes to stress. Ideas on how to address these research needs are presented.
