16
San Diego Creek Newport Harbor Entrance To simplify let’s make some assumptions …. i)Conservation of components (in = out) ii)Well mixed system iii)Volume and surface area = constant iv)1 principal factor determines phytoplankton growth bivalve population Input = [In] x Flow in = #/m 3 x m 3 /min i.e. #/min Output = [Bay] x Flow out = #/m 3 x m 3 /min i.e. #/min

19
Population Growth Exponential growth – x t = x o (1+r) t or P (t) = P o (1+ growth rate) time interval – Solving over time (dx/dt) for changes in population size …. x = ae kt or P(t) = P ini. e (growth constant.time) Population grows rapidly for k>0

20
Logistic growth (Verhulst-Pearl equation) – Initial stage of growth is approximately exponential; then, as saturation begins, growth slows, and, at maturity, net growth stops – P(t) = 1/(1+e -t ) Solving over time …. dP(t)/dt = P(t). (1-P(t)) For biological systems where rate of reproduction is proportional to both the existing population and the amount of available resources self-limiting growth of population – dP/dt = rP(1-P/K) where r = growth rate and K is the carrying capacity – note early exponential growth depends on +rP; later, competition for food/space etc. is due to larger term –rP 2 /K carrying capacity (K) Exponential growth resource limits (feedback) P(t) = (K.P o.e rt )/(K+P o (e rt -1)) where lim P(t) = K t→∞ (r = frac. change/time)

21
What is limiting for phytoplankton (PP) growth ? Nutrient sources (N, P, Fe) or sunlight – Are these constant, variable or variable + periodic (seasonal) Will these variables change the growth rate (r), carrying capacity (K) or both ? How is increasing [PP] related to turbidity reduces sunlight reduces growth ? Nutrient Level Change in Bay d(V.C bay (t))/dt = C in.Q – C bay (t).Q – K cons P(t).V ⇒ dC bay (t)/dt = Q/V(C in -C bay ( t )) – k cons.P( t ) ……. Eq. 1 where …. C = nutrient conc. (moles/m 3 ); Q = flow rate (m 3 /min) K cons = consumption rate (moles of nutrients/moles of PP.min)

22
Phytoplankton Growth Growth of Phytoplankton dP(t)/dt = k growth C bay (t)P(t)(1-P(t)/P max ) – k deg (V/min)P biv …. Eq. 2 k growth C bay (t) is growth rate term (r) P max is PP carrying capacity (K) – k deg (V/min)P biv is clearance rate of PP by bivalve population Turbidity Turb(t) = k opt.P(t) ….. Eq. 3 Turb(t) is interdependent with self-limiting growth from equation 2 and efficiency/size of bivalve population (clearance rate) k opt is a conversion constant

23
Bivalve Population Growth Can write similar equations for bivalve population changes….. – Dependent on [PP] (measured as ∞ turbidity) – Bivalve K biv (carrying capacity) is dependent on [PP] and time- varying variables (e.g. seasons) – Bivalve growth rate (r biv ) is dependent on filtration rate (efficiency) and [PP] (resource) What factors might affect efficiency ? – Habitat (spatial differences: tidal flats v. channels) – Pollution (impaired growth)
