Abstract

SUMMARY: A relatively rapid and reliable method is described for producing axenic cultures of soil-borne blue-green algae, of the blue-green algal endophytes of certain cycads, and the blue-green endophyte of the angiosperm Endl. It was based on the micro-manipulation of hormogonia and akinetes, from which axenic cultures were propagated. Micromanipulation was done during growth in impure culture on an agar medium. The technique was used to obtain axenic cultures of fifteen soil isolates, the endophytes of the cycads (Linnaeus) Johnson, Lehm., and Bull, and the endophyte of Endl. The soil isolates have been tentatively identified as species of the genera , and
