Cyanobacteria in Symbiosis by A.N. Rai, B. Bergman, Ulla Rasmussen

By A.N. Rai, B. Bergman, Ulla Rasmussen

Cyanobacterial symbioses are not any longer considered as mere oddities yet as very important elements of the biosphere, taking place either in terrestrial and aquatic habitats all over the world. it's changing into obvious that they could input into symbiosis with a greater variety of organisms than hitherto identified, and there are numerous extra nonetheless to be came across, rather in marine environments. The chapters conceal cyanobacterial symbioses with crops (algae, bryophytes, Azolla, cycads, Gunnera), cyanobacterial symbioses in marine environments, lichens, Nostoc-Geosiphon (a fungus heavily concerning arbuscular mycorrhiza fungi) symbiosis, and synthetic institutions of cyanobacteria with economically very important crops. additionally, cyanobiont range, sensing-signalling, and evolutionary features of the symbiosis are handled. well known specialists actively all in favour of learn on cyanobacterial symbioses care for ecological, physiological, biochemical, molecular, and utilized points of all identified cyanobacterial symbioses. This quantity on cyanobacteria in symbiosis enhances the 2 previous volumes on cyanobacteria released through Kluwer (Molecular Biology of Cyanobacteria, edited by way of D.A. Bryant and Ecology of Cyanobacteria, edited by way of B.A. Whitton and M. Potts). jointly, the 3 volumes give you the such a lot accomplished remedy of cyanobacterial literature as an entire. The publication will function a worthy reference paintings and textual content for instructing and examine within the box of plant-microbe interactions and nitrogen fixation.

Bipartite and Tripartite Cyanolichens Bipartite lichens are stable symbioses between one type of lichen-forming fungus and one type of cyanobacterial photobiont (Fig. 3A). In most bipartite cyanolichens, the cyanobionts form a more or less continuous photobiont layer below the upper cortex. Tripartite lichens contain both green algal and cyanobacterial symbionts in addition to the lichen-forming fungus (Figs. 3B and 3C). Tripartite lichens include species which house symbiotic cyanobacteria in external or internal cephalodia, species that have both types of photobionts within the same main thallus but in separate sublayers, and the species which form pairs of disparate morphs originating form the interaction of the same fungus with the two contrasting types of photobionts.
