Phenotype Phase Plane
The phenotypic phase plane shows the dependence of symbiotic nitrogen fixation on succinate and oxygen uptake rates. Succinate and oxygen uptake rates are expressed in mmol/gDW/hr. The OF has the same units, and its magnitude is expressed by the color scale (A). Regions denoted by I, II, and III characterize qualitatively different phenotypes in the phase plane (C). The phase plane is shown in 2-D (A) and 3-D (B).
