Microbes Use Wind Power To Travel The World

Computer models of Earth's atmosphere have been used to demonstrate how microbes can use the winds to be widely dispersed between continents, enabling them to colonise new lands and potentially spread diseases. The smallest microbes can easily travel between continents and achieve extensive within-hemisphere distribution, although there is almost no dispersal between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres during the year-long time-scale of the simulations. It was discovered to be less easy for larger microbes to travel between continents.
