Figure 5-2d: Exponential phage adsorption and phage population growth. Panel D: Phage latent periods (optima) that give rise to maximal phage population growth as determined using simulations (adsorption via exponential free-phage decline; circles) or calculations (adsorption for all of free-phage cohort is mean free time in duration; squares) as described for panel C. Panel D is a variation on a figure originally published in (5) and is used with permission as granted by the American Society for Microbiology. See (5) for discussion of methods for all panels.
