Abstract

"The objective of this study was to obtain mathematical expressions to describe predator-prey relationships in a continuous flow culture. The resulting differential equations were tested in an experimental program using Tetrahymena pyriformis W as a predator and Aerobacter areogenes as a host organism. The results should be of interest to those concerned with biological waste treatment processes."--Preface.
