  • THE taxonomic group Prochlorales (Lewin 1977) Burger-Wiersma, Stal and Mur 1989 was established to accommodate a set of prokaryotic oxygenic phototrophs which, like plant, green algal and euglenoid chloroplasts, contain chlorophyll b instead of phycobiliproteins. Prochlorophytes were originally proposed (with concomitant scepticism1–3) to be a monophyletic group sharing a common ancestry with these 'green' chloroplasts4–6. Results from molecular sequence phytogenies, however, have suggested… CONTINUE READING
