 Abstract: A farm-level risk programming framework is presented
 which evaluates income/environmental risk tradeoffs. This
 framework uses a time-series of environmental risk indices to
 incorporate the stochastics, multiattribute characteristics of
 environmental outcomes associated with agricultural production
 practice. The model is applied to a representative farm in the
 Oklahoma Panhandle region of the Central High Plains. Results
 indicate that expected income is sensitive to nitrate loading
 restrictions, and relatively less sensitive to pesticide loading
 restrictions. Results also indicate that prescriptions derived
 using deterministic environmental risk measures may ignore
 significant probabilities of exceeding an environmental standard.

 Abstract: In many regions the use of groundwater for water supply
 is limited by the increase in contamination of aquifers. The
 problem of contamination requires the development of new
 approaches in assessing areas in which groundwater is vulnerable
 to contamination. A brief analysis of the present day level of
 methods for regional evaluation and mapping of areas in which
 groundwater is vulnerable is presented.

 Abstract: The usefulness of common snapping turtles (Chelydra
 serpentina) as biomonitors of lead (Pb) contamination of aquatic
 ecosystems was assessed. Thirty-seven snapping turtles were
 collected from three sites on the Big River, an Ozarkian stream
 contaminated with Pb mine tailings. Morphometric measurements,
 tissue Pb concentrations (muscle, blood, bone, carapace, brain,
 and Over), delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (delta-ALAD)
 activity, hematocrit, hemoglobin, plasma glucose, osmolality, and
 chloride ion content were measured. The data showed no effects of
 Pb contamination on capture success or morphological
 measurements. Tissue Pb concentrations were related to capture
 location. Hematocrit, plasma osmolality, plasma glucose, and
 plasma chloride ion content were not significantly different with
 respect to capture location. The delta-ALAD activity levels were
 decreased in turtles taken from contaminated sites. Lead levels
 in the Big River do not appear to be adversely affecting the
 snapping turtles of the river. Chelydra serpentina is a useful
 species for biomonitoring of Pb-contaminated aquatic
