Fig. S1. Morphological adaptations of B. subtilis 168 in a RHe gradient. Cells differentiate into coils or coiled superstructures at aw values between 0.95 and 0.936 and can be found to grow in more globular shapes below aw values of 0.942. Sometimes both occur in close proximity (A). Close to the aw growth limit only globular cell shapes occur (B) and clusters of cells start to sporulate (C). The white bars indicate 10 μm.
