Immunology i)rovides powerful methods to approach diverse research questions in biological and environmental sciences. Taking advantage of the endless varieo' of antibody molecules which the mammalian immune system can produce, immunoassays can be developed for almost w O' molecule. Antigen-antibody reactions can he visualized in many diDO, rent ways, offering uniquely sensitive and specfic assays. Whether used to ident~" molphologically indistinct larval forms or to quant(~, enzymes inside
