According to some references, the universal occurrence of Anabaena azollae inside the leaves of Azolla suggests that reproduction of this water fern may be. Publication details. Anabaena azollae Strasburger , fig. Published in: Strasburger, E.A. (). Das botanische Practicum. Anleitung zum. Cultures of Azolla caroliniana Willd. free of the symbiotic blue-green alga, Anabaena azollae, were obtained by treatment of Azolla fronds with a regimen of .

Although Azolla can be useful for human consumption, there are very few reports about it. It is a subspecies…. Wikipedia articles needing page number citations from January Articles with ‘species’ microformats. The research on Azolla is vast and has been made for several decades, but only some countries such as India, China, and other Asian countries try to apply the outcomes of this research to benefit populations and especially agriculture practices.
If the fern is only used in the phytoremediation of water, the local populations can send this fern to an industry to recover the heavy metals and receive a monetary compensation or small anzbaena can build a small recovery factory and sell the heavy metals to advanced factories.
Horse, Equus caballusa hoofed herbivorous mammal of the family Equidae.
Peters3 Robert E. It can also be combined with other foods to create balanced diets. This fern has good digestibility [ 83859192 ], but considering the smell, fresh Azolla has a green, mold odor due to some volatile compounds such as alcohols, ketones, and aldehydes that can contribute to its unpleasant smell [ 93 ].
When the environmental conditions light, temperature, photoperiod, and nutrients are optimal, Azolla overgrows forming a dense thick mat causing many problems such as the clogging of water pumps, the drowning of livestock, or the reduction of axollae flow in the irrigation channels [ 8 ].

Journal of Anabwena 1: Regarding fishes, the investigations have been focused on OreochromisTilapiaand Cichlasoma. The research on Azolla for the treatment of domestic wastewater has also been hypothesized.
The Azolla, Anabaena azollae Relationship
The phycocyanin content and total phycobilin complement of the symbiotic algae were distinct from those of Anabaena cylindrica and a free-living isolate of the Azolla endophyte. Photochemical activity and structural studies of photosystems derived from chloroplast grana and stroma lamellae.
The world distribution, the resilience to several environmental conditions of light and temperature, and the formation of thick mats when the environmental conditions are optimal make the Azolla symbiosis a good candidate to be used in agriculture as biofertilizer, to the phytoremediation of contaminated water, and as nutritional supplement, among others.
Support Center Support Center. Some authors hypothesize that the A.
RayGerald A. Spectrophotometric characteristics of chlorophylls a and b and their pheophytins in ethanol. Morphological aspects of the symbiotic association show the confinement of the Anabaena azollae within the leaf cavity of the Azolla.

Our readership spans scientists, professors, researchers, librarians, and students, as well as business professionals. However, the fern did not uptake nor accumulate microcystins [ 81 ] and cylindrospermopsin [ 82 ], making this fern not suitable to the phytoremediation of those environmental contaminants.
The prokaryote has a continuous supply of nutrients and protection against herbivores and desiccation, while the host has a provision of all or almost all of the nitrogen needed for its development, allowing the colonization of nitrogen-poor environments aquatic or terrestrial [ 234 ].
National Center for Biotechnology InformationU.
Images in this article Image on p. Another approach is the implementation of integrated farms with the cultivation of Azollafish in aquaculture, and agriculture.
When the environmental conditions become favorable, the fertilized macrosporocarp germinates and the inoculum of the cyanobiont is anabarna into the new leaves [ 2122 ].
This adaptability makes this fern to be considered as an invasive species in many countries especially in Europe such as Germany, Portugal, Spain, Great Britain, and others. Studies on nitrogen fixation by blue-green algae. Wzollae The prokaryotic organisms cyanobacteria and bacteria appeared on Anabaean about 3 billion years ago, and during their evolution, both formed associations with other organisms.
The specific activity of glutamate dehydrogenase is greater than that of glutamine synthetase in the association and individual partners. Key references Geitler, L. Anbaaena of the problems is the use of Azolla collected from the environment for biofertilization and as a food supplement since if it can grow in polluted water bodies anaaena since Azolla can accumulate contaminants such as heavy metals this would be a health problem due to human exposure to those contaminants.
For that reason and given that in many countries the populations are far away from cities or do not have scientific resources, it would be useful to discover a cheaper, simple, and rapid method to detect such compounds.
The process in which light changes the shape of molecules in the retinathereby driving the cellular reactions and signals that cause vision in vertebratesis studied in Anabaena. This is a not annabaena process and difficult to obtain in controlled conditions, but the recent sequencing of the RNA of the sporocarps and sporophyte of A.
However, the efficient uptake of heavy metals by dried Azolla depends on time, the flux of the effluent, pH, and temperature, and Azolla species is turning difficult to make an optimized and efficient system to be applied in large-scale decontamination of wastewaters. Retrieved from ” https:
