Abstract
The paper describes the need for an array of standardized tests for regulatory purposes. The use of microorganisms for toxicity testing is proposed as an alternative to the use of larger animals both to economize and to partially placate the animal rights enthusiasts. The use of littoral enclosures, an economical alternative to larger mesocosms allows for true replication and control of test systems. The need for ecologists and ecotoxicologists to interact frequently in order to improve the precision and accuracy of their predictions is addressed. (Copyright (c) 1990 American Chemical Society.)
