    Ninth in ASTM series, this volume addresses the following subjects:
    • the impact of genetically engineered microorganisms in aquatic environments
    • bioaccumulation and bio transformation of xenobiotics
    • uality assurance programs for the hydra reaggregation test and the hydrogen oxidation soil bioassy
    • biomonitoring
    • new test methods
    • and the relationship between sediment and toxicity and bioavailabilty of chemicals.
