The phosphorus-limited growth of cultures of the nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria Aphanizomenon and Anabaena was investigated. In conditions of nutrient and light excess Anabaena has a competitive advantage. The lower the light intensity conditions at which Aphanizomenon populations dominate are indicated for future study.
