Nitrogen, Phytoplankton, Detritus

Add detritus as a component (and de-select zooplankton if they are still selected).

Instead of the oversimplified scenario of phytoplankton turning directly back into nitrogen when they die, phytoplankton turns into detritus (dead stuff). The detritus is then remineralized and turns back into nitrogen, adding one more step to the cycle. If the remineralization rate is set to 0, none of detritus returns to the environment as nutrients.

Run the model and compare the ecosystem with and without detritus as a component.
