Filamentous cyanobacteria are important primary producers and N2 fixers in many terrestrial environments. As reduced nitrogen is often limiting, some thalloid liverworts (Marchantiophyta), hornworts (Anthocerophyta), the water fern Azolla (Salviniales), cycads (Cycadophyta), and the angiosperm Gunnera (Gunnerales) have evolved the ability to establish stable and structurally well-defined symbioses with N2-fixing cyanobacteria. Also a wide diversity of lichen-forming fungi have cyanobacteria as… CONTINUE READING
