Abstract : This ESTCP project, Demonstration and Certification of Amphibian Ecological Risk Assessment Protocol, CU-0514, was designed to demonstrate and validate an innovative technique for the evaluation of potential risks to amphibians in palustrine wetland environments. This technique builds on previous DoD research which resulted in development of a tiered amphibian ecological risk assessment (ERA) protocol as well as laboratory toxicity tests for evaluating potential risks to amphibians due to exposure to contaminated soils and sediments (referred to herein as the soil protocol and sediment protocol, respectively).
