Maximum likelihood tree of cyanobacterial subset. Maximum likelihood analysis of 16S rDNA sequences from 58 cyanobacteria, based on GTR+G+I substitution model, with Beggiatoa sp. as an outgroup. Posterior probabilities (> 0.9) in black and bootstrap values (> 50%) in red are shown at the nodes. Posterior probabilities were calculated from 265,858 trees inferred by Bayesian analysis. Bootstrap values were calculated from 500 re-samplings of the 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 [9]. AC, B, C, E and E1 denote clades discussed in the text.
