This substrate concentration is termed Smin. For values of S less than Smin, biomass loss due to microbial decay surpasses microbial growth and the biomass will either never grow or will gradually disappear. By definition, S ϭ Smin when mnet ϭ 0, that is, dXa/dt ϭ 0. 15 hϪ1). Basic concepts of biological processes 29 Therefore, Smin is a kinetic parameter, independent of reactor configuration. , microbial decay and maintenance are ignored), Smin ϭ 0. In other words, the existence of an Smin value for a particular system is a result of microbial decay and maintenance.

1994). G. Pavlostathis bodies, highly acidic or alkaline soils and water (Brock et al. 1994). Distinctive differences exist in the chemical composition of both cell wall and cell membrane between bacteria and Archaea, which explains the existence of Archaea in such extreme environments. Algae These range from unicellular to large aggregates of filamentous cells. , soil, tree bark, and rocks). Algae contain chlorophylls and other pigments, which serve as lightgathering molecules and allow photosynthesis to take place.

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.
