    The latest volume in this ASTM series explores the advancements in the field of environmental toxicology and risk assessment, including methods of carrying scientific findings forward to sound policy decisions. 25 papers in 6 sections cover:

    Aquatic Toxicology--examines the ionic composition in water used in toxicity tests and how that impacts on metal toxicity; how modified PAHs impact on EROD levels; how UV radiation in natural aquatic settings impacts on photosynthesis in phytoplankton; and ship channel contaminant assessment.

    Interface Between Policy, Science and Risk Assessment--addresses the use appropriate data in environmental modeling; statistical procedures to find the real ecological risk drivers; comparisons of fish and human toxicity; and statistical evaluation of terrestrial non-target organisms.

    ASTM Standards and Their Applications--focuses on how ASTM standards can be used in science and policy.

    Biomonitoring of Sediments and Aquatic Systems--deals with an extension of the Microtox assay; assessing PAH bioavailability at off-shore oil wells; a new powerful molecular bioindicator; a comparison of EROD and fibronectin levels; and toxicity of photomodified polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon mixtures in contaminated sediments.

    Current Issues In Soil Toxicity and Remediation--discusses how important the evaluation of soil toxicity is becoming, and how such contaminated sites can be cleaned for reuse.

    New Directions in Environmental Assessment and Recovery--explores how to use environmental assessment data to make decisions on risk and restoration.
