In March, The Society for General Microbiology issued a press release at their annual general meeting about a talk we were giving about how a 10th Century recipe from Bald's Leechbook could kill Staphylococcus aureus. The worldwide response was quite amazing and here a just a few media links:
BBC Radio 4 Frontiers special program on Quorum sensing [link]
Quorum sensing and cheating in bacterial biofilms [link]
The Microbial Olympics (in Nature reviews Microbiology) [link]
Density-dependent fitness benefits of quorum sensing [link]
Some of our work has been highlighted in the revised version of the textbook 'An Introduction to Behavioural Ecology' in the chapter 'Communication and Signals'.
