This journal abstract reports that light-induced motility of different cyanobacterial lineages may be indicative that the trait is possibly widespread among the group. The full article, in PDF format, can be downloaded at no cost. It includes research methods and results, images of the microorganisms, figures analyzing the motility of the isolates, and a discussion of the findings and proposed implications.
