How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Two cyanobacterial strains, one collected from an epidermal mat present on a dead bottlenose dolphin and the other as a bioaerosol 457 m (1500 ft) above the river, were recently analysed from the St. Johns River, Jacksonville, Florida, USA. Both samples had major phenotypic plasticity which confused morphological identification. Amplicon sequencing...
The Nostocales is a monophyletic, heterocytous lineage of cyanobacteria capable of akinete production and division in multiple planes, depending upon family‐level clade. While present in a variety of ecosystems, the diversity of the Nostocales has been poorly elucidated. Due to environmentally induced phenotypic plasticity, morphology alone is oft‐...
Cyanobacteria are common members of epilithic communities, contributing fixed carbon and nitrogen, providing UV light shielding pigments, helping to retain water, and in general stabilizing particles. Conversely, biofouling by cyanobacteria is of great concern in the U.S. and abroad. The epilithic growth of cyanobacteria on cultural monuments has b...
