Nostoc is a photosynthetic blue-green bacterium (cyanobacterium) and is capable of fixing nitrogen from the atmosphere into soluble N compounds that can be used by plants. Chloroplasts, the photosynthesizing bits in plant cells, started out as free-living cynaobacteria hundreds of millions of years ago, before there were any land plants.
