Cyanobacteria, or otherwise known as “Cyanophyta”, are part of the
kingdom of Bacteria. They obtain their energy through photosynthesis and are classified as prokaryotes. Cyanobacteria are
found in nearly every habitat in the world, from the mountains, to the soil, and even in the ocean. They are also used in
modern day such as in fertilizer, providing nitrogen in the cultivation process of rice and beans to be able to grow. Cyanobacteria
is also essentially the scientific name for blue-green algae and received its name because the earliest recognizable forms
of it were blue and green in color.
