Summary
Abstract: The California Wildlife Exposure Factor and Toxicity Database
(Cal/Ecotox) is a compilation of exposure factors (i.e., ecological
and physiological data) and toxicity data for a number of California
mammals, birds, amphibians and reptiles.

The database has been created by the Office of Environmental Health
Hazard Assessment, in collaboration with the University of California
at Davis, to provide an information resource for risk assessors
conducting ecological risk assessments in California.

Cal/Ecotox is searchable by species or chemical. In addition, complete
species reports are available for downloading.
