  • A systematic account of the theory is given in the book DEB3 (Cambridge Univ Press, 3rd edition 2010), which corrected the errata found in the printed version.
  • The notation document contains the rules for notation that are used, as well as the notation itself.
  • Comments to DEB3 is a collection of developments since 2010 and explanations of parts of the book. It is a document which changes frequently.
  • The summary of concepts presents the meaning the various concepts and their function in the theory. It has no formulae or biological observations and follows the section-structure of DEB3.

Below some selected references.

Bibliography of DEB papers

  • DEB library on Zotero. The papers include summaries of particular aspects of the theory, formal (axiom-based) and less formal (biology-based), introductions, sub- and supra-organismic levels and applications. Becoming a Zotero member is easy (and has no costs), which gives access to all PDFs.
