Marine cyanobacteria were isolated from rhizosphere soil samples, of the three mangroves viz
Parangipettai, Ariyankuppam and Mudasal odai mangroves south east coast of India. As many as 39
Cyanobacteria, belonging to 12 families were identified in which Oscillatoriaceae alone contributed (11). The
species such as Oscillatoria cortiana, Oscillatoria salina, Oscillatoria tenuis, Oscillatoria formosa, Lyngbya
major, Lyngbya confervoides, Lyngbya majuscule, Lyngbya mesotricha, Phormidium stagnina, Plectonema
terebrans and Plectonema putuale and minimum in Synechococcaceae recorded only one species the species
such as Synechococcus elongatus. Among the species Synechocystis salina, Oscillatoria salina, Phormidium
ambiguum, Phormidium tenue, Spirulina major distributed all the mangroves.
