2007), nitrogen limitation is recognized as the ideal condition for the occurrence of cyanobacterial blooms, reported in several studies in eutrophic ecosystems, highlighting the predominance of heterocystous species (MOURA et al.
Free-living heterocystous cyanobacteria are rare in the full-salinity marine systems, although the marine environment is generally considered as nitrogen limited.
Nitrate can, therefore, be the limiting nutrient permitting the proliferation of heterocystous cyanobacteria (O'Neil et al.

Among specific topics are oxygenic photosynthesis, molecular chaperons and stress tolerance, sensing and molecular responses to low temperature, regulatory mechanisms in response to osmotic stress, environmental factors regulating nitrogen fixation in heterocystous and non-heterocystous cyanobacteria, the role of spontaneous mutation in adaptations to anthropogenic and natural stress, and benthic Microcystin and climate change.

Most of the cyanobionts appear to be heterocystous which is as close to a multicellular organisation as is possible in these bacteria in which hexose, produced by photosynthesis, moves from the vegetative cells to the heterocyst (Meeks & Elhai, 2002).
