Bacterial colonization waves in patchy habitats. (A) Wave profile of the α wave shown in Figure 1D, shown here as the area fraction occupied per patch (occupancy) as function of space, different lines show the profile for t = 210 min to t = 250 min in steps of 10 minutes. (B) Wave profile for the β wave shown in Figure 1D, different lines show the profile for t = 320 min to t = 350 min in steps of 10 minutes. (C) Wave profile for the γ wave and expansion front (F) shown in Figure 1D, different lines show the profile for t = 390 min to t = 430 min in steps of 20 minutes. (D) Distribution of wave velocities (of strains JEK1036 and JEK1037 combined) for α (red), β (green) and γ (blue) waves.
