Abstract : THE BIOTA ASSESSMENT WILL FULFILL THE GENERAL NEED FOR COMPREHENSIVE INFORMATION ON THE PLANTS AND ANIMALS ON AND NEAR RMA IN RELATION TO CHEMICAL CONTAMINATION. THE PRIMARY OBJECTIVE OF TASK 915 TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON: (1) MIGRATION OF CONTAMINANTS THROUGH THE FOOD WEB (2) INJURY TO ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES. PHASE I INVOLVES THE COMPILATION OF EXISTING INFORMATION ON THE PRESENCE AND DISTRIBUTION OF RMA CONTAMINANTS IN THE BIOTA A BRIEF FIELD SURVEY DOCUMENTS PRESENT CONDITIONS AND RECENT CHANGES. PHASE II CONSISTS OF ANY FIELD AND LABORATORY STUDIES NEEDED. SECTIONS OF THE TWO TECHNICAL PLANS DETAIL INFORMATION ON THE FOLLOWING PROGRAMS: EVALUATION OF EXISTING INFORMATION, QUANTITATIVE BIOTA STUDIES, CHEMICAL ANALYSIS, QUALITY CONTROL, SAFETY, SAMPLING, AND DATA MANAGEMENT. OTHER INFORMATION IN THE PLAN INCLUDES: CONTAMINATION SITES AND SOURCES, CONTAMINANTS OF CONCERN, CONTAMINANT LEVELS IN BIOTA, INJURIES AND DEATHS, FOOD WEBS, SPECIES LISTS.
