Photosynthetic bacterial consortia

Dear Colleagues;

      I am seeking references to articles dealing with the
structure of bacterial photosynthetic consortia as deter-
mined using light or electron microscopy.  In addition,
a very long time ago I read an article (by Howard Gest?)
describing a rosette-shaped bacterial consortium in which
the bacterium at the centre of the rosette was photosynthetic,
and it was postulated that the surrounding non-photosynthetic
species derived essential nutrients from the photosynthetic
member of that consortium.  Does anyone have references
to this particular consortium?

      All responders are asked to write to me _directly_ at
toukie at zui.unizh.ch

Thanks,

S. Shapiro
