Mathematical modeling of microbial populations has a long history of application in the fields of ecology and environmental remediation. In the present study, the Verhulst-Pearl growth model and the Malthusian growth model were used to model and understand the kinetics of Photobacterium sp exposed to lead. The results show that goodness of fit of the Verhulst-Pearl growth model was better that the Malthusian growth model. Therefore, the Verhulst-Pearl growth model is considered the best option for proving useful and reliable information about Photobacterium sp kinetics growth in vitro.
