Effects of phage adsorption rate and lysis time on plaque size, productivity, and concentration in plaques. Plaque size (A and D), plaque productivity (B and E), and phage concentration within plaques (C and F) are plotted against either the adsorption rate (A - C; top x-axis for the Stf- phages, bottom x-axis the Stf+ phages) or the lysis time (D - F). In all cases, Stf+ phages (filled circles) and Stf- phages (open circles) are plotted separately. Error bars showed the 95% confidence intervals.
