This paper reviews the main highlights of the GEEP Workshop, both its successes and failures, draws conclusions from these and from lessons learnt in convening and participating in the workshop, and suggests a way forward for research and application of biological effects techniques. We point to the importance of maintaining close links between the research effort and the evaluation of procedures that emerge, in the context of a wide spectrum of climatic and environmental regimes. The utility of measures of biological responses to pollution will depend on the extent to which a suite of such measurements can be put together so as to link In a cause/effect manner the results of chemical analyses and responses at the biochemical, cellular physiological, population and community levels Some hopeful trends and some basic difficulties are indicated. We suggest that further practical workshops on the same model as the GEEP Workshop, but held in different climatic regions and with different faunas, will play an essential part in furthering the development of techniques for measuring the biological effects of pollutants.
