the amount of viable biomass cannot increase at or above this temperature. The effect of the term (1-CxAr/CxAm) in Eq. (16.24) means that, as CXAr increases, this critical temperature falls to lower and lower values
Fig. 16.8. Typical behavior that might be expected for the specific growth rate and specific death rate parameters as a function of temperature according to the Arrhenius equations (Eqs. (16.25) and (16.26))
