Cyanobacteria are considered good models for biohydrogen production because they are relatively simple organisms with a demonstrable ability to generate H[subscript 2] under certain physiological conditions. However, most produce only little H[subscript 2], revert readily to H[subscript 2] consumption, and suffer from hydrogenase sensitivity to O[subscript 2]. Strains of the cyanobacteria Lyngbya aestuarii and Microcoleus chthonoplastes obtained from marine intertidal cyanobacterial mats were recently found to display much better H[subscript 2] production potential.
