Dose-response analysis is a technique used to determine the safe and hazardous dosage of drugs, pollutants, and other substances to which humans and other organisms are exposed. This book provides a practical and comprehensive overview of methods for dose-response analysis. It includes many real data examples to illustrate the methods, and R code is integrated into the text to show how they are implemented. The book is supplemented by a website with all code and data, and has been written so as to be accessible to practitioners from biology and chemistry, as well as applied statisticians.
