The effect of variable N : C and P : C ratios in the reservoir medium on chemostat steadystate situations is explored using idealized mathematical models. A simple 'Monod' type model, with fixed biomass composition and constant yield, is used to gmde the general understanding of the outcome to be expected. With this model, 3 uniquely defined areas of reservoir medium N : C and P : C ratios are discerned, corresponding to either carbon, nitrogen, or phosphorus limitation of bacterial growth.
