Exploring the evolutionary response of Bacillus simplex strains to the slope-specific habitats of 'Evolution Canyon' I and II, Israel, we report here on presumably adaptive differences in fatty acid (FA) content that correlate with one particular feature of the habitats, temperature difference. These two canyons represent similar ecological sites, separated by 40 km, in which the orientation of the sun yields a strong sun-exposed and hot 'African' south-facing slope versus a rather cooler and… CONTINUE READING
