The report is the proceedings of a symposium convened at Williamsburg, Virginia February 21-23, 1978. The volume consists of 24 formal presentations that amplify the three major topics discussed during the symposium: an overview of short-term bioassay systems; current methodology involving the collection and chemical analysis of environmental samples; and current research involving the use of short-term bioassays in the fractionation and analysis of complex environmental mixtures. The purpose of these proceedings is to present the state-of-the-art techniques in bioassay and chemical analysis as applied to complex mixtures and to foster continued advancement of this important area of collaborative research. Complex mixtures discussed include ambient air and water, waste water, drinking water, shale oil, synthetic fuels, automobile exhaust, diesel particulate, coal fly ash, cigarette smoke condensates, and food products.
