Ecotoxicology Databases and Expert Systems

Project Summary

Ecotoxicology Logo

One of EPA's long-term goals is to facilitate the exchange of credible scientific data and risk assessment information among private and public stakeholders. To meet this objective, this Division has developed a suite of databases and expert systems that can be used by risk assessors and researchers to quickly locate relevant ecotoxicology data and models.

Databases and expert systems include:
