Abstract: A workshop entitled "Ecological Risk Assessment and Military Related Compounds: Current Research Needs" was held in Denver, CO, 31 July-2 August 1996. The purpose of the workshop was to provide a forum to discuss needed improvements in the way ecological risk assessments are being conducted on Department of Defense facilities and to determine how future research activities should be directed to fill data gaps and develop needed assessment tools. The workshop was attended by over 100 people from the Army, Navy, and Air Force; the Department of Energy; State and Federal regulatory agencies; the private sector; and academia. Forty-two papers related to the subject of the workshop were presented during the meeting. Discussions at the workshop regarding science and policy, selecting contaminants of concern, designing ecological risk assessments, and the issue of uncertainty are summarized in this report. Specific recommendations are made regarding directions for future research.
