Assesses current ERA studies, examines their weaknesses, and offers new solutions.

Strategically groups new ERA studies, allowing readers to quickly locate those that relate to their specific areas of expertise.

Presents new risk assessment methods for chemically-contaminated sites.

Describes assessment for resident biota in polluted sites, and determining the need for intervention and monitoring.

Compares and contrasts laboratory-based tests and field tests, and explains when and how to use each.


This book is a compendium of highly purposeful studies all waiting to be conducted. It explains how avoiding common study design flaws, opportunities are created to observe that true risk assessment questions may not exist, that chemically exposed receptors are probably unharmed, and that ecological risk assessment might not be needed at all.
