  • AmP (Add-my-Pet) collection: A free online database of DEB model parameters for over 1500 animal species, see Marques et al. 2018
  • Debber Species explorer: This web server provides Dynamic Energy Budget parameters - expected values and their probability distribution - for any of the 1.6 million species in the Catalogue of Life. It builds on the AmP collection of DEB parameters, which currently comprises nearly 1000 species. To extrapolate to any new species, the species explorer uses a phylogeny-aware method that account for taxonomic relationships between species (related species tend to have similar traits) and covariation (power law relationships) between DEB's primary parameters. It is currently based on AmP values from 2017.
  • Zotero Library of DEB papers: References to the over 850 papers published on the DEB theory since it's inception in 1979. You can access PDF when you are member of zotero.
