In the majority of natural situations, monospecies biofilms are comparatively rare, primarily colonizing medical
prostheses and in-dwelling devices. By comparison, in most natural and industrial environments biofilms are
complex communities consisting of more than one microbial species. Moreover, mixed species biofilms are
often thicker and more stable than monospecies biofilms, a factor that may contribute towards their profound
resistance to antimicrobial agents.
