A 3-wk practical workshop on the biological effects of pollutants was held in Bermuda, September 1988, under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission's Group of Experts on the Effects of Pollutants (GEEP). Field and laboratory studies examined the applicability, to subtropical ecosystems, of several techniques for measuring biological effects whose utility had previously been established mainly for temperate zones. The Workshop results, covering chemical, biochemical, physiological and community data, are reported in the nine papers of this JEMBE Special Issue. This introduction describes the background to the Workshop and gives details of the integrated sampling programme carried out in two Bermudan harbours. © 1990.
