PROFILE: Risk Assessment as an Environmental Management Tool: Considerations for Freshwater Wetlands

A. Dennis Lemly
1997 Environmental Management  
For example, some strategies give explicit instructions for evaluating physical stressors that may have impacted a wetland as a consequence of changes in land-use practices, but they offer no guidance  ...  Many different approaches have been developed to assess ecological risks (US EPA 1992, Suter 1993)) but none of these were developed specifically for application to freshwater wetlands.  ...  For example, using published information on toxicity, bioaccumulation, and environmental cycling, Lemly (1995a) developed a protocol for aquatic hazard assessment of selenium.  ...
