Paenibacillus vortex Necklace

$19.75

mini-pvortex-02.pngThis necklace represents a colony of Penabacilus vortex. The swirls formed by these enigmatic bacteria emerge from a “swarming intelligence” which can be likened to the schooling of fish, and serve as impressive, macroscopic evidence that there is far more to bacteria than meets the eye!

Knowledge of the complex relationships that bacteria have with each other and with so-called higher organisms has grown enormously in recent years, and this necklace is a great emblem of a revolution in knowledge that is only just beginning! 

Comes with an adjustable-length 2mm leather necklace cord and an educational card on the subject of bacterial multicellularity.
