Are bacteria that have grown through log phase and are in stationary
phase physiologically (or otherwise) similar to bacteria taken from
midlog phase of growth and placed in a mineral salts medium without a
carbon and energy source?.  If bacteria in these two conditions are
different, which condition is most similar to bacteria in nature (e.g.,
in soil)?  Any thoughts or references are welcomed.
