Description / Abstract:
This guide along with Guide E1192 and guidance from the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (1,2)2 covers the use of
resident species in toxicity testing, particularly if site-specific
information is desired. For example, in those systems where
particular species are considered to be economically or
aesthetically important, it might be more appropriate to utilize
resident species for testing (3). For this reason, the USEPA allows
development of site-specific chemical standards, using resident
species, in order to reflect local conditions (1). This guide is
designed to guide the selection of resident species for use as test
organisms in aquatic and sediment toxicity tests. It presupposes
that the user is familiar with the taxonomy of aquatic and benthic
species and has some field experience.
