6.8 Detritus fate

The Detritus fate form is accessed through the Navigator window. If there is more than one detritus group in the system, you must specify where the detritus left over after the detritivores have covered their food intake is to be directed. Surplus detritus can be directed to the same detritus group (equivalent to 'biomass accumulation')  or to other groups, by entering the appropriate fractions directed to each detritus groups. If these fractions sum to less than 1, the remaining part of the surplus detritus will be exported out of the system.
