Asset Details

  • Description:
  • The effect of the number of strains per group, Ns, on the group's ability to adapt when subjected to a daily varying environmental pH. The model is set up for just one group – B1with pH limitation, H, equal to 1 (i.e. no limitation) for pH > 6.35, and decreasing linearly to 0 (i.e. no growth) as pH decreases to 6.1 (H = 0 for pH < 6.1). Two model realizations were performed: Ns = 1 and Ns = 25. A. Shows the variation in the total bacterial concentration for the group and the pH. B. Shows the adaptation of the group's mean pH trait. C. Shows the concentration for each strain for the Ns = 25 realization.
