Abstract
The transport, fate and effects of many toxic chemicals in aquatic ecosystems are largely mediated by microbial transformations. In the research, the authors have assumed that the transformations are a result of enzymatic reactions, and thus follow Michaelis-Menten kinetics. Using diverse field-collected and laboratory microcosm microbiota, the authors obtained sufficient experimental data to reach some general conclusions concerning the strengths and weaknesses of using Michaelis-Menten kinetics in making environmental predictions.
