Abstract : Currently there are no published regulatory methodologies for ecological risk assessment provided by federal or state agencies. In response to the need to standardize ecological risk assessment or develop new guidelines for use across federal agencies including the Department of Defense, the Department of Energy, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Ecological Risk Assessment Working Group was charged with identifying, collecting, and reviewing existing ecological exposure and hazard assessment approaches and providing general guidelines for a uniform approach that can be applied to all federal agencies. This report, a first step in this process, summarizes and reviews available information on ecological risk assessment guideline.
