Microbial lag phases

Hi,

I've been given an assignment to calculate the lag phases of several
microorganisms from graphs of their growth.

I don't have any problem with this, but what do I do if the organism begins
to decline in numbers almost from time 0?  Do I assume there is no lag phase
at all (as there is no increase in numbers), or can an organism have a
negative lag phase?

Help!
Craig
