New filamentous heterocystous cyanobacteria were isolated from the alkaline soda lake Magadi in Kenya. The characteristics of the isolates are summarized and their taxonomic position discussed. Uniform attributes of the strains, grouped in two types, Mag II 702 and Mag I 504 are the following: helical structure of the trichomes, immotility, gas vacuolation, obligate autotrophy, nitrogen fixation under aerobic conditions, and closely similar fatty acid composition, including the uncommon cis… CONTINUE READING
