Abstract

Morphological characteristics of Cylindrospermopsis raciborskii were investigated in batch culture under P-starvation and in continuous cultures at two growth rates with different N forms. The species displayed an enormous morphological variability under controlled condition. In the P-starved batch culture very short and extreme morphology trichomes with conical or drop-shape heterocytes were formed. In continuous culture extremely long, twisted filaments were found near the maximum growth rate. Rarely, C. raciborskii formed intercalary heterocytes.
