    Features the latest advances in determining the impact of chemicals on the environment.

    A comprehensive overview of the current status of ecological risk assessment and suggested advances for the discipline is the cornerstone of this publication. Twenty-two additional papers are presented in five categories, including, for the first time ever, the subject of Models in Ecological Risk Assessment.

    Other categories include:

    Ecotoxicology: Prediction and Assessment -- The estimation and measurement of ecological effects at various sites.

    Sediment Toxicology -- Varied procedures to identify and assess contaminated sediments.

    Fate and Effects of Chemicals -- How specific chemicals impact laboratory microcosm systems, fresh and saltwater flora and fauna, and general molecular structural parameters.

    Methods Development -- The development and refinement of new methods to evaluate exposure and toxicity in the field of risk assessment.
