Blue square indicates the modeled T50 parameter of the Behrends model, or inflection point of the curve, and the width parameter of the model is depicted by the green bar centered at T50. The orange square represents themore » calculated Th value, or when half of the total amount of compound has been depleted, and the red bar depicts the calculated usage window, or time when the compound is depleted from 90 to 10% of the total amount used by the species« less
