Because earthworms improve soil quality, enhance nutrient release and uptake, and maintain and increase soil aeration and drainage, their use in testing has been central to both soil ecology and ecotoxicological risk assessment. After meeting in 1991 to discuss lab and field testing, these expert authors reconvened in 1997 to update their findings and share new insights about bioavailability and internal load as discriminating factors for assessing environmental impacts.

This 31-chapter volume also covers models that estimate the impacts contaminants may have on long-term population survival.
