Assimilation and Net Growth Efficiency - I need a precision Watch
In order to compute assimilation efficiency, I wonder if Assimilation = Ingestion - Egestion or depending on the organism, for instance for microzooplankton or bacteria, it can be Assimilation = Ingestion - (Egestion + Excretion) as these organisms excrete carbon. I have the same question for Net Growth Efficiency.
