About this book

From the Chapman & Hall Microbiology Series this unique resource offers specific experimental and practical applications of mathematical modeling in microbial ecology. Mathematical Modeling in Microbial Ecology presents a variety of systems, ranging from subcellular systems to ecosystems, and shows how to test whether the models provide a good representation of the system.

Mathematical Modeling in Microbial Ecology also encourages further development and application of modeling to burgeoning problems associated with microbial ecology, such as the pollution and destruction of pesticides and herbicides.


Contents

- Environmental microbiology and mathematical models
- a statistical perspective
- nonlinear modelling versus replicate measure analysis
- the Monod model and its alternatives
- biofilm impact on microbial systems
- modelling of pesticide biodegradation in soils
- using transport model interpretations of tracer test to study microbial processes in ground water
- modelling nitrogen transformations in soil
- construction and analysis of static, structured models of nitrogen cycling in coastal ecosystem
- a modelling approach to elucidating the distribution and rate of microbial catalyzed redox reactions in anoxic groundwater
- mathematical models of bacteria chemotaxis
- from the ground up - the development and demonstrated utility of a ruminal ecosystem model
