Short description: This conference presentation outlines the argument for ecotoxicological tests in the assessment of contaminated soil, focusing on the German ERNTE project as an example of work aiming to produce and compare different test methods to establish a range of quick, reliable laboratory ecotoxicological tests to assess contaminated sites. A battery of tests is recommended, along with scope for improvement and examples of applications.
