   Greetings,

    
   I'm a grad student with a physics backgro= und working on a dynamic
   model of a waste stabilization pond that is used t= o reduce the BOD
   of biodiesel wash water and grow algae for use as a biodie= sel
   feedstock.  I'm trying to learn a vast amount of biology and am in   the process of tracking down parameters.  Would you know where to loo   k for the following constants/rates:


   
   reaction rate of oxidation for algae respiration

   rate constant for algae respiration

   maximum growth rates for algae, aerobic bacteria, and anae= robic
   bacteria


   also, do you know how much oxygen is produced per amount of
   algae/bacter= ia/an. bacteria?


   Thank you for any help,

   James
