||Physiological and nonspecific biomarkers have been used extensively in the laboratory to document and quantify both exposure to, and effects of, environmental pollutants. The chapter summarizes the advantages and disadvantages of physiological and nonspecific biomarkers. It lists the criteria to be used in selecting biomarkers to address specific ecological questions. After a general discussion of this topic, several specific biomarkers of possible utility in environmental monitoring of exposure and effects are described individually. For each of these biomarkers, the chapter presents research needs for developing and validating ecologically meaningful biomarkers.
