Choptank River

Map: Choptank River, outside of Washington, D.C. off the Chesapeake Bay

Caption: Populations of bacterial species such as Vibrio cholerae are very patchy in distribution--they vary over both time and space. We can see here how Vibrio species vary seasonally from spring to winter in the Choptank River, a tributary of the Chesapeake, and even markedly from one week to the next. This work was done by my student, John Heidelberg, now at The Institute for Genomic Research.
