Blue Green Algae from Tropical Paddy Fields

495.00

This first edition of this book is an attempt to integrate information about Cyanobacteria (BGA) growing in the tropical paddy fields. The book blends information about the physicochemical parameters of soil and water with the distribution of cyanobacteria in tropical fields. Cyanobacterial distribution is studied in coastal, hinterlands, Khazars and mining-affected paddy fields. Special attention is given to the classification, description and key formation of the identified cyanobacteria. The book shows clear demarcation of unicellular, non-heterocystous and heterocystous forms of cyanobacterial forms. Heterocystous forms are natural nitrogen fixers of a paddy field micro-ecosystem. An attempt has been made to draw camera lucida diagrams of identified species. This book also points towards a possible inoculum of a biofertilizer to be made with the indigenous heterocystous species of cyanobacteria to be used as a source of a potential biofertilizer instead of chemical fertilizer.
