It is crucial to understand the concept of fixed and variable costs to correctly calculate the break-even point. If the fixed costs are greater than zero, then its important to have a positive contribution margin per unit (i. e. price>variable costs) to reach a break-even point at all.

Case Study: Salt Marshes

Formation and development of salt marsh Salt marshes are intertidal areas of fine sediment transported by water and stabilised by vegetation.
