Some argue that ecotoxicology studies, which have more in common with toxicology than ecology, are too simplistic for assessing whether a chemical is likely to have an ecosystem effect. Peter Calow of the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom and Valery Forbes with Roskilde University in Denmark show that there may be rules for extrapolating from one to the other and suggest ways that ecotoxicology could be even more informative.
