Similarity of spatiotemporal patterns for habitats inoculated with same cultures. Kymographs show the fluorescence intensity of strains JEK1036 (green; inoculated from the left at t = 0 h) and JEK1037 (red; inoculated from the right at t = 0 h). (A) Five parallel habitats in the same device (type 1) with separate inlets, each kymograph shows the spatiotemporal pattern of a single habitat. (B) Habitat on a different device inoculated with a different set of initial cultures (with separate inlets; type-1) than in panel A. (C) Habitat in a device (type-2) with a shared inlet. Note the similarity between the patterns of the five habitats in panel A (all inoculated with the same initial cultures), compared to the patterns of the habitats in panels B and C (inoculated with different cultures than the habitats in A).
