A third model, commonly evoked in the human gastrointestinal literature, posits that microbial growth in the intestine resembles growth in a chemostat
(Macfarlane et al.
A possibility to estimate the competitive abilities of different Daphnia species without using chemostats
(Rothhaupt 1990) is the "threshold food concentration" concept (Lampert 1977), a special case of Tilman's [R.
Although the short-term 14C bioassays did not indicate nutrient limitation, the enclosures, chemostats
, and long-term 14C bioassays demonstrated that nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) limited phytoplankton growth in the lake.
male-female, parent-offspring) is not necessary, as demonstrated by Paquin and Adams (1983) in their studies of asexual yeast populations living in chemostats
Scenedesmus acutus was cultured in chemostats
with continuous light.
Caron (1990) found reduced yield coefficients for a kinetoplastid flagellate and a colorless chrysophyte when they were grown in chemostats
at low growth rates (6-7% of [[Mu].
An experimental model: Bacterial specialists and generalists competing in chemostats
The flagellate chemostats
were either kept dark or they received continuous light ([approximately equal to]80-100 [[micro]mol] quanta [multiplied by] [m.
Mass action models apply only over an instant of time, which may not be a serious restriction for systems in continuous motion, like planets or chemostats
Scenedesmus acutus from chemostats
was used as food for both cultures and experiments.
We used pB15, a plasmid that was reported to be stably maintained in chemostat
populations of E.
Live food production using batch culture and chemostat
systems in Kuwait.
