    Chlorophyll a and phycocyanin are the major pigments found in cyanobacteria producing the blue-green color.

    The archaebacteria resemble the oldest bacteria fossils in their size and shape.

    Zygomycetous fungi have two different mating strains to successfully produce a zygote (offspring). There is no physical difference in the structure of the gametangia so the easiest way to indicate the different strains is a plus sign or a minus sign. You could use any indicator you prefer.
