Studies on cyanobacterial diversity in bromeliad phytotelmata are scarce, despite their ecological importance in this environment, including N2 fixation for bromeliad nutrition. Here we discuss the morphological and ecological aspects of 18 cyanobacteria species collected in tank bromeliads in Bahia State, northeastern Brazil. The material examined from 85 sampling units were collected in the phytotelmata of three species of bromeliads. Three morphospecies, Pseudanabaena acicularis , Romeria okensis, and Cyanobium eximium, are reported here for the first time from South America. This study expands our knowledge of cyanobacteria in bromeliad phytotelmata and provides new information on their communities, including the environmental characteristics where each species was found.

More about this publication?
  • Nova Hedwigia is an international journal publishing original, peer-reviewed papers on current issues of taxonomy, morphology, ultrastructure and ecology of all groups of cryptogamic plants, including cyanophytes/cyanobacteria and fungi. The half-tone plates in Nova Hedwigia are known for their high quality, which makes them especially suitable for the reproduction of photomicrographs and scanning and transmission electron micrographs.
