This review of biomonitoring techniques should be read in conjunction with its companion report, Air Quality Outcomes in pollution regulation: strengths, limitations and potential (Bealey et al., 2007, hereafter referred to as Part A), which outlines the advantages and disadvantages of an outcomes-based approach to regulating emissions to air from industrial sources, and identifies the need for biomonitoring tools to make this approach viable.
