    34 papers debate the merits of test development, animal and plant culture, nutrition and testing, and the lack of interagency harmony. Papers are divided into the following categories:

    • Benefits of Interagency Harmonization of Methodology

    • Review of Common Modes of Toxic Action

    • Field Techniques

    • Interpretation of Microcosm Data

    • Quality Assurance in Ecotoxicity Testing

    • Sediment Toxicity Testing

    • Culturing and Testing of New Organisms

    • Nutrition and Testing

    • Target Toxicant Analysis
