Abstract

was isolated from soil and water as a predator of cyanobacteria. Several strains of consumed cyanobacteria but there were differences in predatory activity between strains. The unicellular and filamentous were particularly susceptible to predation. Under optimal conditions the amoebae fed voraciously but they encysted when the cyanobacterial food supply was exhausted. Predation was initiated by engulfment of whole cyanobacteria and, in the case of , severance of filaments. This was followed by digestion in vacuoles.
