Comments P.2 left column 2nd paragraph: "For five species, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, Salmonella enterica, Staphylococcus aureus and Vibrio cholerae, [investigators] have both an accumulation and a mutation rate estimate and hence can estimate the DT [doubling time]. Among these five species [they] find [their] DT estimates vary from 1.1 h in V. cholerae to 25 h in S. enterica (table 1). In all cases the estimated DT in the wild is greater than that of the bacterium in the laboratory. For example, E. coli can double every 20 min in the laboratory but [they] estimate that it only doubles every 15 h in the wild."
