Abstract

The rapid bioassessment and in situ bioassay, the cost effective tools for environmental impact assessment were discussed. The development of two methods of in situ bioassay that can address bioavailability of constituents of concerns was also studied. The use of caged bioassay organisms can be applied to terrestrial systems such as capped of existing waste sites using the common house cricket. Combining in situ techniques with RBA methodologies has the potential to provide a comprehensive assessment of chemical and physical impacts to a wide range of ecosystem types.
