Abstract
Denitrification has a wide range of factors that control its complex regulatory network, one of which is the low concentration of electron donors. In this case the absence of available electrons causes high concentrations of cytotoxic gases (NO and/or N2O) for denitrifying bacteria. The individual adaptive behavior to environmental conditions through different behavior-rules is one of the most powerful aspects of microbial individual-based models.
