19) where, b ϭ specific microorganism decay rate constant (T Ϫ1). G. 3 depicts the relationship between m and mnet as a function of substrate concentration. , b Ͼ 0), as the substrate concentration decreases, a value of S Ͼ 0 is required to balance growth and decay, that is, where mnet ϭ 0. 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.

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.

Enzymes play an important catalytic role in all biochemical reactions by lowering the reaction activation energy and thus increasing the reaction rate by as much as 1020 times (Brock et al. 1994). The biocatalytic role of enzymes is appreciated if one considers that these reactions take place under normal temperature and pressure conditions. In addition to their energy-related, biocatalytic role, enzymes play an equally important role in the regulation of the extent of biochemical reactions, which occur simultaneously.
