The target audience for the compendium includes regional project managers and biological technical assistance groups. The methods summarized are grouped according to their potential target or receptor classification; animal, plant, or microbial. Methods which assess soils directly are emphasized here but additional methods applicable to wetlands soils or sediments have also been included to complement those methods readily available for aquatic and sediment toxicity assessment. Some of the methods summarized represent consensus standards that have previously been identified as methods applicable to soil testing, while others are less well characterized but remain potential candidate methods for biological evaluation of soil contamination. Tabular guides to the selection of tests methods applicable to various habitats and toxicity endpoints are summarized to help potential users select the most appropriate biological assessment tool for the site under consideration.
