    Abstract

    The basic concept of environmental toxicity and its importance in the evaluation of ecosystem health will be introduced. Toxicity evaluation theory and practice will be briefly discussed. Traditional techniques such as bioassays for environmental toxicity evaluation will be introduced where the advantages and disadvantages will be presented. But the main focus of environmental toxicity evaluation will be on the use of more recent techniques for rapid environmental toxicity assessments such as toxicity biosensor and its basic concept, current applications, and future prospects.
