Excessive growth of cyanobacteria leads to blooms. These blooms severely affect the aquatic ecosystem. This work describes the utilization of these bloom forming Cyanobacteria as potential sources of antibacterial agents. Antibacterial activity is the antagonistic effect exerted by the microbes on other living species. Cyanobacteria have a tendency to produce secondary metabolites which prevent the growth of bacteria.The antibacterial property of these microbes is due to their excellent acumen to produce secondary metabolites which prevent the growth of bacteria.

Cyanobacterial symbioses are no longer regarded as mere oddities but as important components of the biosphere, occurring both in terrestrial and aquatic habitats worldwide. It is becoming apparent that they can enter into symbiosis with a wider variety of organisms than hitherto known, and there are many more still to be discovered, particularly in marine environments. The chapters cover cyanobacterial symbioses with plants (algae, bryophytes, Azolla, cycads, Gunnera), cyanobacterial symbioses in marine environments, lichens, Nostoc-Geosiphon (a fungus closely related to
