AbstractAccording to the European WFD, ecological status is based on three quality elements: biological, physicochemical and hydromorphological, but ecotoxicological status is still not included. Biological status is not always in coherence with chemical status, maybe due to the adaptation mechanisms of aquatic organisms under chronic chemical exposure. In these situations, ecotoxicity tests could be useful to resolve these divergences. Moreover, the evaluation of the freshwater ecological status often supposes time, workforce expertise and costs, that sometimes the water management organisms can not assume.
