Abstract
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.
