This demonstrates two common P-I relationships for marine phytoplankton.
% The two P-I curves plotted are from:
% 1) Evans & Parslow (1985)
% 2) Platt et al (1980)
%
% PICURVES()
% PICURVES(..., 'form' , string )
% PICURVES(..., 'PBs' , numeric)
% PICURVES(..., 'alpha', numeric)
% PICURVES(..., 'beta' , numeric)
%
% Parameter/Value Pairs:
% 'form' - string, either 'Evans and Parslow' or 'Platt'
% (default is 'Evans')
% 'PBs' - number (default is 1.07)
% 'alpha' - number (default is 0.03)
% 'beta' - number (default is 0.00) (Note: Beta is not used in the
% 'Evans' form)
