Several microcosm types are currently in use, most to study the fate and effects of toxic substances. An example of the use of microcosms for testing and further development of a model for methoxychlor is described. The finding of an additional dominant process previously unconsidered for methoxychlor is discussed. Three simple ecosystems are considered and compared for their steady state values.
