Table 2 Average size of counted objects during the growth period 0–29 h. The area is reported in μm2; the number of individual objects counted is reported in brackets. After 29 h, it was no longer possible to count the number of objects due to the high degree of coalescence. At the next time point, 46.5 h, there remained 26 individual objects on culture A and just a single object on each of the other cultures. The number of spores deposited on the membrane at time zero varied between 645 and 715, indicating the reproducibility of the inoculation procedure
