    Appl Environ Microbiol 69:3223-30. 2003
    ..Thus, it appears that plate counts may be a more appropriate method for determining the effect of heavy metals on soil bacteria than culture-independent approaches...

    NERC Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, SL5 7PY, Berks, UK
    J Microbiol Methods 56:287-90. 2004
    ..Its utility for supporting realistic microbial populations was demonstrated and an example of how competing bacteria can be studied is illustrated...

    Richard J Ellis
    NERC Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College London, Berkshire, UK
    ISME J 1:92-5. 2007
    ..However, the region of coexistence was complicated by conjugation which increased plasmid spread in the mixed broth culture but not the structured environment...

    Quan Guo Zhang
    NERC Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College London, Silwood Park Campus, Ascot, Berkshire SL5 7PY, United Kingdom
    Evolution 66:1985-90. 2012
    ..Our results suggest that competition experienced by diversifying lineages may have complex effects on adaptive radiations not fully captured by current theory...

    James I Prosser
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen, Aberdeen AB24 3UU, Scotland, UK
    Nat Rev Microbiol 5:384-92. 2007
    ..Here we argue that the full potential of the ongoing revolution will not be realized if research is not directed and driven by theory, and that the generality of established ecological theory must be tested using microbial systems...

    Robert Zarnowski
    Department of Agricultural Microbiology, Agricultural University, Wrocław, Poland
    Pol J Microbiol 53:267-72. 2004
