Assessing sediment quality / Elizabeth A. Power and Peter M. Chapman -- Sediment variability / Lars Hêakanson -- Sediment collection and processing : factors affecting realism / G. Allen Burton, Jr. -- Ecosystem assessment using estuarine and marine benthic community structure / Robert J. Diaz -- Evaluation of sediment contaminant toxicity : the use of freshwater community structure / Thomas W. La Point and James F. Fairchild -- The emergence of functional attributes as endpoints in ecotoxicology / John Cairns, Jr., B.R. Neiderlehner, and E.P. Smith -- The significance of in-place contaminated marine sediments on the water column : processes and effects / Robert M. Burgess and K. John Scott -- Plankton, macrophyte, fish, and amphibian toxicity testing of freshwater sediments / G. Allen Burton, Jr. -- Assessment of sediment toxicity to marine benthos / Janet O. Lamberson, Theodore H. DeWitt, and Richard C. Swartz -- Freshwater benthic toxicity tests / G.A. Burton, Jr., M.K. Nelson, and C.G. Ingersoll -- Biomarkers in hazard assessments of contaminated sediments / William H. Benson and Richard T. Di Giulio -- Models, muddles, and mud : predicting bioaccumulation of sediment-associated pollutants / Henry Lee II -- Sediment bioaccumulation testing with fish / Michael J. Mac and Christopher J. Schmitt -- Integrative assessments in aquatic ecosystems / Peter M. Chapman, Elizabeth A. Power, and G. Allen Burton, Jr. -- Management framework for contaminated sediments (the U.S. EPA sediment management strategy) / Elizabeth Southerland, Michael Kravitz, and Thomas Wall -- Assessment and management of contaminated sediments in Puget Sound / Thomas C. Ginn and Robert A. Pastorok -- The effects of contaminated sediments in the Elizabeth River -- R.J. Huggett [and others]. The chapters in this book focus on assessing the toxicity of sediments, therefore, emphasizing biological components and their interaction with physical and chemical factors.
