    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    CONTAINED IN VOL. 11.06, 2016 Defines procedures for obtaining data concerning toxicity and other effects of a test material to a multi-trophic level freshwater community.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This practice covers procedures for obtaining data concerning toxicity and other effects of a test material to a multi-trophic level freshwater community.

    1.2These procedures also might be useful for studying the fate of test materials and transformation products, although modifications and additional analytical procedures might be necessary.

    1.3Modification of these procedures might be justified by special needs or circumstances. Although using appropriate procedures is more important than following prescribed procedures, results of tests conducted using unusual procedures are not likely to be comparable to results of many other tests. Comparison of results obtained using modified and unmodified versions of these procedures might provide useful information concerning new concepts and procedures for conducting multi-trophic level tests.

    1.4This practice is arranged as follows:
