Caption: Bacterial (shiny) and fungal (matt and fuzzy) colonies growing on a nutrient agar gel plate from an imprint of a banknote 150x69 mm. This stage of development was reached 6 days later at 18 C. The variety of colony colours and dimensions reflects the variety of microorganisms carried by the paper money taken from circulation during a busy Christmas shopping season in North America.
