This study aims to improve the taxonomic knowledge and characterization of Phormidiaceae populations in Brazilian territory. Some material for study is already available in culture and new collections in different habitats (as tree trunks, rocks, stream bottoms, reservoir plankton) are planned for this project. Specimens will be studied according to morphology and molecular (16S RNAr gene and 16S-23S ITS) features. Ecological information will also be incorporate to taxonomic evaluation of species/populations. It is expected the study contribute to the better characterization and understanding of the phormidiaceaen diversity. (AU)
