  • a Relative rates of growth were calculated by dividing the growth rates observed following nutrient upshift (from 0 to 2 and 2 to 6 h after the upshift) by the maximum growth rates observed during log-phase growth. The data are the averages of results for four experiments. The maximum standard deviation was 25%.
