Phil. Trans. Roy. Soc., 365: 3413 - 3428
We present the state of the art of the development of DEB
theory, and the expected developments in the near future within
the molecular, biological and ecological domains. The degree of
formalisation in the setup of the theory, with its roots in
chemistry, physics, thermodynamics, evolution and the consistent
application of Occams razor, is discussed. We will place the
various contributions in the theme issue in this theoretical
setting, and sketch the scope of actual and potential
