    Pollution ecology is one of the few disciplines in biology that grew out of a societal need to fix a problem. The research community was forming questions as well as simultaneously developing methods, both toxicological and analytical, to address the questions in a cultural framework that demanded immediate answers. Aquatic toxicologists wrestled with pollution issues as they developed. By establishing basic methods and sorting out different responses between ecosystem compartments, an assessment philosophy emerged that enabled us to better investigate contaminant impacts (Mount and Brungs 1967; Mount and Stephan 1967).
