39) where So ϭ initial substrate concentration (or influent substrate concentration for a continuous-flow system (M/L3)). G. Pavlostathis where g ϭ constant (unitless). When Ϫg ϭ 1, the Moser model reverts to the Monod model. 42) where B ϭ constant (Msubstrate/Mbiomass). Note that as Xa → ϱ, the substrate utilization rate becomes first-order with respect to S and zero-order with respect to Xa. Typical values of the ratio k/B in the case of hydrolysis of particulate organic matter range from 1 to 3 per day.

Therefore, microorganisms are open systems, constantly undergoing change. All biochemical processes taking place within a cell are collectively called metabolism. Anabolism (or biosynthesis) is the process by which the cell obtains simple nutrients from its environment and converts them to cellular constituents. A distinction is made between heterotrophic organisms that use organic material as the carbon source for biosynthesis and autotrophic organisms that build up their material from CO2. In addition to carbon, the microbial mass is composed of several other elements.

Soil, tree bark, and rocks). Algae contain chlorophylls and other pigments, which serve as lightgathering molecules and allow photosynthesis to take place. They are primary producers since they require only inorganic chemicals for growth. 3N. In addition to photosynthesis, algae also use oxygen for respiratory metabolism, especially during periods of darkness, resulting in the removal of oxygen from the aquatic system. , systems rich in nutrients, especially N and P) is a nuisance and can lead to a severe depletion of oxygen during periods of darkness resulting in death of fish and other macroorganisms.
