AbstractMorphological characteristics of an edible terrestrial cyanobacterium Nos toc flagelliforme in liquid suspension cultures under photoautotrophic conditions are presented. Different cell forms alternated in a regular manner during the experimentation period (30 d). N. flagelliforme exhibited a very complex life cycle in terms of colony morphology, including mainly 4 different colony morphological forms, viz. hormogonia, filaments, seriate colonies and aseriate colonies. Under laboratory conditions it formed spherical colonies on solid media but not threadlike colonies as it did under natural conditions. The overall life span of the alga was not altered by the existence of different nitrogen sources in the media despite the depression of some cell forms or colony morphologies. Compared with growth on the medium with urea and ammonium as nitrogen sources, the alga on standard medium had a short period of hormogonia and aseriate colony, suggesting that both ammonium and urea could stimulate the formation of hormogonia, at the same time inhibiting the formation of heterocystous cells. The new information on the growth and morphology of N. flagelliforme could be potentially used for the scale-up or field cultivation.
