Describes methods for formulating models of the metabolic and physiological processes of microorganisms from a mathematical perspective. The models used--biodegradation, individual cellular functions and environmental cycles--are practical, mathematical tools that enable researchers to predict and control microorganism behavior. The focus is on their behavior in the natural environment, with mixed populations of microorganisms and heterogeneous substrates.
