DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1021/es8005173
The paper analyses how toxicological impacts of chemical pollution can be extrapolated between different environmental organisms, and the genetic basis therefore. This facilitates the selection of appropriate test organisms and hence improved strategies for environmental hazard assessment.

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1080/713609857
Establishing and validating the causal link between chemical pollution and observed ecotoxicological effects is one of the main challenges for developing ecosystem management strategies. The paper explores the possibilities and limitations for doing so using metal pollution as an example.

DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/508173a
This paper argues in support of the notion that there is sufficient scientific consensus for at least a minimum value of the social cost of carbon – as an example on how to account for the costs of emissions into the environment.

This paper argues that we need an international system for organizing permit trading areas, in addition to simple more localized systems.

This opinion paper was written for the general public, in order to add to the ongoing discussion whether and to what extent environmental taxation is a helpful policy instrument for sustainable use of chemicals. It is also one of the first products of FRAM, developed in parallel to working on the full proposal.
