THE ECOLOGY OF CYANOBACTERIA THEIR DIVERSITY IN TIME AND SPACE

Résumé :

Cyanobacteria make a major contribution to world photosynthesis and
nitrogen fixation, but are also notorious for causing nuisances such as
dense and often toxic `blooms' in lakes and the ocean. The Ecology of
Cyanobacteria: Their Diversity in Time and Space is the first book to
focus solely on ecological aspects of these organisms. Its twenty-two
chapters are written by some thirty authors, who are leading experts in
their particular subject.
The book begins with an overview of the cyanobacteria - or blue-green
algae, for those who are not specialists - then looks at their diversity
in the geological record and goes on to describe their ecology in
present environments where they play important roles. Why is one of the
key groups of organisms in the Precambrian still one of the most
important groups of phototrophs today? The importance of ecological
information for rational management and exploitation of these organisms
for commercial and other practical purposes is also assessed. Accounts
are provided of nuisances as well as the ecology of the commercially
successful Spirulina and the role of cyanobacteria in ecosystem recovery
from oil pollution.
Many chapters include aspects of physiology, biochemistry, geochemistry
and molecular biology where these help general understanding of the
subject. In addition there are three chapters dealing specifically with
molecular ecology. Thirty-two pages of colour photos incorporate about
seventy views and light micrographs. These features make the book
valuable to a wide readership, including biologists, microbiologists,
geologists, water managers and environmental consultants. The book
complements the highly successful The Molecular Biology of Cyanobacteria
already published by Kluwer.
