The Multitudes

“I am large, I contain multitudes,” wrote Walt Whitman, in Song of Myself. Little did he know just how right he was. Interesting stuff by Carl Zimmer on the human microbiome in today’s New York Times. All of us, islands of microbial life — mountains, valleys, caves.

The article also contains one of the most unpleasant word combinations lately to get stuck in my head: “fecal transplantation.” Thanks a lot, Mr. Zimmer. (Image from the Times)
