Cyanobacteria form a prominent component of microbial populations in almost all ecosystems, especially in rice fields where they contribute significantly to fertility as a natural biofertilizer. Also, cyanobacteria are a rich source of several novel metabolites having biotechnological and industrial significance. This book discusses the most recent knowledge and modern trends in the field of cyanobacterial research and its importance in the scientific and industrial world.
