  1. n/a = not applicable.
  2. a 'Yi/j' is the yield of i on j (i.e. production of i divided by consumption of j). 'X' represents Cmoles of biomass and 'hv' denotes moles of photosynthetically-available photons.
  3. b 'ATP' represents moles of ATP available for cellular maintenance.
  4. c 'syn' designates a parameter associated with the Synechococcus guild. 'FAP' indicates a parameter associated with the filamentous anoxygenic phototroph guild and 'SRB' denotes a parameter associated with sulfate-reducing bacteria guild.
  5. d 'PHB' represents Cmoles of polyhydroxybutyrate (a carbon/electron storage compound associated with the filamentous anoxygenic phototrophs).
