Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Live organisms offer the opportunity to monitor water resources for toxic conditions by measuring changes in their established behavioral and physiological responses. The U.S. Army Center for Environmental Health Research uses fish ventilatory pattern analysis to monitor aquatic environments for toxic conditions. The Center and APL have initiated an exploratory analysis of data from a series of controlled, single-substance validation tests being conducted at Ft. Detrick, Maryland. This article presents the results of some preliminary analyses and outlines future directions for follow-on studies.
