    45 papers present the development of new reserach techniques, synopses of available techniques, findings concerning various environmental stressors, and the application of techniques and processes to environmental assessment.

    In eight sections:

    • Aquatic Toxicology and Use of Experimental Ecosystems

    • Biomarkers

    • Effluent Toxicity and Simulated Treatment

    • Environmental Neurotoxicology

    • Plants for Toxicity Assessments

    • Risk Assessment

    • SAR/QSAR in the Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics

    • Sediment Toxicology.
