This chapter focuses on transgenic Caenorhabditis elegans developed for ecotoxicology purposes to the end of 2007. This chapter discusses how transgenic Caenorhabditis elegans strains are generated and reviews literature concerning their use in biomonitoring. Developments in the understanding of stress responses is also briefly explored as they have the potential to be translated into novel C. elegans biosensor strains.
