Hi! i am working with fresh water microalgaes, and i am studying the
between de input of phosphate and nitrogen in exponencial growing of the
microalgaes, that is, ds/dt/dx/dt. How the input through the membranes of
this nutrientes works? the are active transport?, what´s the relation
them in terms of their consuption, the input of one of them "inhibits" the
input of the other. What can i say, theorically, if the nitrogen is the
limitant substract and the phosphate exists in the medium. How they interact
one with each other?
