I have introduced cyanobacteria (as opposed to bacteria) as a microscope exercise for the introduction to my plant identification course as I see a growing interest in them. A student then asked me about cyanoprokaryota as he had heard that was being used to emphasise the differences from eubacteria. I had to confess not having heard of the term and since then I have been having difficulty in finding the source of this term and therefore the reasoning behind it even though it is not infrequently used in journal articles.  If anyone can point me in the right direction, I would be grateful.

John Steel.
