Cyanobacteria Slides

This is a collection of slides of cyanobacteria that you may have seen in laboratory. The characteristics shown here should help you prepare a data matrix to make an attempt at a cladistic analysis of these genera of cyanobacteria or to make a dichotomous key to the cyanobacteria.
