Phylogenetic tree of a cyanobacterial subset. Bayesian consensus cladogram of 16S rDNA sequences from 58 cyanobacterial strains, based on GTR+G+I substitution model, with Beggiatoa sp. used as outgroup. Posterior probabilities (> 0.9) are shown in black at nodes and bootstrap values (> 50%) in red. Posterior probabilities were calculated from 265,858 trees and bootstrap values from 500 re-samplings of the original data set. Colors define groups: yellow are single-celled cyanobacteria of section I; orange single-celled from section II; green are multicellular, undifferentiated cyanobacteria from section III; blue are multicellular and differentiated bacteria from section IV; and pink from section V. Sections as described by Castenholz 2001 . AC, B, C, E and E1 denote phylogenetic clades described in the text.
