1. We recommend the use of bicoordinate plots, termed utilization plots, for the analysis of nutrient budgets. 2. Utilization plots explore the relationship between nutrient uptake (intake or absorption from the gut) and the various compartments to which ingested nutrients are allocated. 3. They provide more information, and are numerically less problematic, than ratio-based nutritional indices.
