The present study describes and explores a model to determine bacterial growth, respiration and net ammonium remineralization as a function of the average substrate C:N ratios and concentrations of organic substrates. Several experimental data sets were used to estimate critical parameters of the model. These data sets suggest that carbon and nitrogen growth efficiencies play a central role in the computation of bacterial growth, respiration, and net ammonium remineralization. The new… CONTINUE READING
