International Society of Environmental Bioindicators
The International Society of Environmental Bioindicators (ISEBI) seeks to explore the scientific bases and uses of environmental bioindicators, i.e., bioindicators and biomarkers, as they relate directly to specific measurable effects in ecological and human populations from environmental exposures. Environmental bioindicators range from molecular or genetic indicators to landscape-level indicators. Environmental bioindicators are tools to help in understanding the effects of the presence of a contaminant(s) or other types of disturbances in the ambient environment. The objective of ISEBI is to provide a empirically derived foundation in the use of indicators to help define environmental and ecosystem health and requisite protection; and to further the development of cost-effective regulatory endpoints.
