Paper Abstract

The laboratory supervision above culture filament cyanobacterias, which form of construction stromatolites, have shown, that at various types of influences in originally homogeneous community (film) from filament cyanobacterias there are allocated structures specific to each kind of influence. It was interpreted as the phenomena having similarities to such processes at more developed organisms, as differentiation and ontogenesis. Proceeding from this, cyanobacterias films was attached the status organism with all complex whole of display of functions, including with function of formation of a skeleton. These data were applied to understanding of nature stromatolites, constructions, when all observable morphological variety of constructions can be explained by the morphological answers of community of filaments to change of the factors of environment.
