Abstract

When proper statistical procedures were employed, the empirical Cell Quota model of Droop (J. Mar. Biol. Assoc. UK, 48, 689-733, 1968; J. Phycol., 9, 264-272, 1973) proved a better fit to 20 out of 21 data sets (of conserved nutrients) than did the power law-based Chemical Reaction model of Baird (J. Plankton Res., 21, 85-126, 1999).
