In other words, the overall energy coming from the use of nutrients (usually completely available for the growing process), in this case is partially diverted to the toxicants production. A linear function of the concentration of the producer species can be then introduced, to represent the regulating mechanism of such a production. This introduces a new parameter (denoted by k). (iv). The experiments, show that the effect of Chlorellin on P. subcapitata is inhibitory. In particular, such inhibition decreases the exponential function, which introduces a new parameter (denoted by g).
