Abstract
Microcosms or modern ecosystem studies are described and evaluated as tools to assess the response of a microbial community to a pollutant released in the environment. Precautions and potentials are discussed regarding the potential role of microcosms in risk assessment of environmental hazards, and their capability to predict the fate and effects of organic compounds in aquatic environments.
