Heterocytous Cyanobacteria show high trait variation at the cellular, organismal, and population levels. Members of this group can produce specialized cells such as akinetes and heterocytes that influence their ecology, including bloom development and population survival. This study characterizes patterns of variation in the traits of these species, including the traits of specialized cells, to expand our ecological knowledge and predictive capacity for this group. We compiled and synthesized mo...

Dolichospermum flos-aquae and Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii are two cyanobacteria species which cause harmful blooms around the world. Both these species share the capacity to fix atmospheric nitrogen in heterocytes (cell where fixation occurs). While Dolichospermum can express heterocytes at rather regular intervals across the filament, Cylindrospermopsis can only express heterocytes at the end of the filament. The aim of this study was to experimentally assess the role of heterocyte position ...
