[from the pigment phycocyanin.]
any of a group of photosynthetic autotrophic prokaryotic
microorganisms possessing characteristics of both bacteria
and plants. When classed as bacteria, they are assigned to
the Cyanobacteria; when classed as plants, they are assigned
to the Cyanophyta. They were earlier named blue-green algae
, a term less used now in technical discussions. Since
the chlorophyll within the cyanobacteria is diffused
throughout the cell, rather than being contained in
chloroplasts, they are no longer thought of as true plants.
