Caption: Lyngbya. Scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of the filamentous blue-green algae Lyngbya sp. Here elongated rows of cells are seen forming strands, with each strand called a trichome. The cells of Lyngbya have a protective sheath, visible at the end of the cell (at upper left). These strands undergo fragmentation to form short chains of cells called hormogonia. Blue-green algae (group: Cyanophyta) are considered to be one of the most primitive organisms, dating back to pre-Cambrian times. Lyngbya is a common filamentous blue-green algae occurring widely in marine and freshwater environments, and in mangrove swamps.
