A marine cyanobacterium

Lineage: Bacteria[35224]; Cyanobacteriota[749]; Cyanophyceae[499]; Synechococcales[120]; Synechococcaceae[47]; Synechococcus[4]; Synechococcus elongatus[1]
Synechococcus. These unicellular cyanobacteria are also known as blue green algae and along with Prochlorococcus are responsible for a large part of the carbon fixation that occurs in marine environments. Synechococcus have a broader distribution in the ocean and are less abundant in oligotrophic (low nutrient) regions. These More...
