Title: Aquatic toxicity information retrieval data base (AQUIRE for non-vms) (1600 bpi). Data file

Abstract

The purpose of AQUIRE is to provide scientists and managers quick access to a comprehensive, systematic, computerized compilation of aquatic toxicity data. During 1992 and early 1993, nine data updates were made to the AQUIRE system. AQUIRE now contains 109,338 individual aquatic toxicity test results for 5,159 chemicals, 2,429 organisms, and over 160 endpoints reviewed from 7,517 publications. New features include a data selection option that permits searches that are restricted to data added or modified through any of the eight most recent updates, and a report generation (Full Record Detail) that displays the entire AQUIRE record for each test identified in a search. Selection of the Full Record Detail feature allows the user to peruse all AQUIRE fields for a given test, including the information stored in the remarks section, while the standard AQUIRE output format presents selected data fields in a concise table. The standard report remains an available option for rapid viewing of system output.
