Abstract
The purpose of the Symposium was to discuss the application of the currently available bioassays for in situ environmental assessment and to evaluate the utility of the integrated chemical and biological data obtained under real-world condition for the assessment of human health effects from exposure to a given environment. Adverse biological effects result mostly from the complex interaction of chemical and physical components in a given environment. In recent years, increased emphasis has been placed on the utilization of plants and terrestrial and aquatic animals for in situ environmental assessment. The Symposium reviewed the regulatory aspects related to industry and hazardous waste programs; the application of in situ bioassay and chemical analyses for assessing hazards to the ecological health in marine, freshwater, and terrestrial environments; and the application of in situ monitoring to human health in the work place and home.
