Publications / List of books & chapters


This list contains books and book chapters that deal with DEBtox. The best book to read about DEBtox is of course the e-book that was specifically written to explain the DEBtox concepts in detail.

Requirements to be included

On this page, I will collect books. book chapters and official reports that deal with DEB applications in ecotoxicology.
