Cyanoprokaryotes are probably the oldest organisms with plant metabolism. However, their cell structure and type of asexual reproduction prove their eubacterial origin. They are able to colonize all possible biotopes, including very extreme environments (thermal springs up to 80 °C, rocks in extremely hot or cold deserts in both the tropics and Antarctica, hypersaline lakes and marshes, biotopes in volcanic regions, and other harsh habitats).

This book was written for identification and standardization of known, morphologically and ecologically distinguishable European Cyanoprokaryotes that have been described from natural populations. In the introductory part only data important for identification practice are therefore included. At the end of this chapter we append a list of this basic literature, which comprises all the necessary detailed information. We have selected accurate drawings of described species.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
(..) Das Werk erfreut aber dennoch mit einer ungeheuren Fülle von Fakten und neueren Befunden. Es wird daher für alle , die sich intensiv mit den so vielfältigen und interessanten Cyanobakterien befassen, eine unentbehrliche Arbeitshilfe sein.

(..) We can recommend this well-illustrated manual for algologists who wish to develop their skills in identifying freshwater Cyanobacteria. It is indispensable for algologists, botanists, and biologists as a new complementary book of the Süsswasserflora von Mitteleuropa series. We recommend it also in university education.
