Abstract Cultures of Azolla caroliniana Willd. In the sexual reproduction, the sporocarps are differentiated on the ventral lobe when the environmental conditions are adverse to the vegetative propagation or survival of the fern. The water of the pond should be analyzed for the presence of harmful contaminants; If it is decided to use the Azolla that grow in water bodies, the water and fern must be analyzed in terms of contaminants since if it surpasses the legal amounts provided by each country, WHO, FAO, or other it cannot be used.

Another approach is the implementation of integrated farms with the cultivation of Azollafish in aquaculture, and agriculture.
Regarding fishes, the investigations have been anabaeja on OreochromisTilapia azpllae, and Cichlasoma. Verlag von Gustav Fischer. In fish aquaculture, it is usual to add sulfadimethoxine to prevent diseases in animals but the not absorbed fraction of this antibiotic is excreted through the fish feces and thus contaminates the water.
Difference spectra and extinction coefficients of P Indian Journal of Agricultural Science A more extensive azollaee with Azolla for human ingestion was made for space travels, which reveals that it would be beneficial to include steam sterilized leaves and roots in the space diet of astronauts to fulfill the human nutritional requirements .
Phycocyanin was measured by absorption and fluorescence emission spectroscopy. The study focused on heterocystswhich convert nitrogen anabanea ammonia. In conclusion, although many researches regarding the potential use of Azolla as biofertilizer, food, and phytoremediation and applications are made by farmers in India, China, or Vietnam, there are still many gaps and the research still does not really meet the needs of the populations of the countries that might benefit from this natural tool.
In controlled conditions of nutrients, light, and temperature, Azolla can grow and provide sufficient amount of biomass [ 3839 ]. Applications The world distribution, the resilience to several environmental conditions of light and temperature, and the formation of thick mats when the environmental conditions are optimal make the Azolla symbiosis a good azkllae to be used in agriculture as biofertilizer, to the phytoremediation of contaminated water, and as nutritional supplement, among others.

In a world of increasing demand for biofertilizers especially nitrogen for a high productivity in agriculture, the use of industrial fertilizers increases not only the production costs but also the azpllae impacts of the runoff with a high content of nitrogen to the water bodies and their eutrophication.
Azolla chloroplasts were generally comparable to spinach chloroplasts. Journal of Phycology 1: Uchida Rokakuho Publishing Co. Heterocyst cells are terminally specialized for nitrogen fixation. Azollae article has been cited by other articles in PMC. This property of nitrogen fixation has made Azolla extremely important economically in the cultivation of rice, particularly in Asia.
The Azolla, Anabaena azollae Relationship
But, there are studies regarding other crops. A comparison of the chlorophyll a and b content of Azolla fronds azollea and without the symbiotic alga resulted in an estimate that in the symbiotic association, the Anabaena azollae accounts for from 7.
Also, the geometry of rice fields is important [ 51 ]. The amount of nitrogen in caryopsis increases after the application of Azolla in the intercropping system between cultures [ 50 ]. The free-floating aquatic fern Azolla is small and heterosporic, with a worldwide distribution in quiet waters rivers, dams, creeks, etc. The research on Azolla for the treatment of domestic wastewater has also been hypothesized.
