  I don't know if you've been following this newsgroup but there was an 
extensive discussion in February about animal models.  You might want to 
check the bionet archives.  Secondly, there was an excellent paper given 
at the SOT Meeting this past March by  A. Fairbrother entitled "Critical 
Attributes of Animal Models Used to Evaluate Ecotoxicologic Effects/Risks 
in Wildlife".  You might want to do a literature search with Fairbrother 
as an Author search.  Anne (Ibelieve) Fairbrother is at Oregon State 
university, Corvallis, Oregon.
