The report provides a review of several of the methods developed by EPA and other Federal and State agencies for assessing ecological impacts or risks associated with the release of toxic or hazardous substances into the environment. Included is a review of legislative or executive directives under which ecological assessment methods have been developed. Three general objectives of ecological assessments are identified and discussed. Qualitative and quantitative methods are discussed, and 'top-down' and 'bottom-up' approaches are compared. Individual reviews of twenty ecological assessment methods focus on four major components of ecological risk assessment: receptor characterization, hazard assessment, exposure assessment, and risk characterization.
