bacterial diversity assessed by cultivation-based techniques shows predominance of staphylococccus species on coins collected in lisbon and is usually considered a source of infections, yet survival of bacteria on dry metal surfaces is limited. the aim of this work was to assess the bacterial numbers and diversity on coins collected in casablanca and lisbon as these two cities, on different continents and only 585 km apart, have diverse cultural habitats, but have similar climate. a cultivation-based characterisation of the bacterial community showed that a relatively low number of cells per area of coin were found on both mor ...201424289164
