palustris is phototrophic
, which means that it uses energy from light to carry out certain metabolic processes.
Biotechnological potentials of anoxygenic phototrophic
bacteria make an ideal tool for resource recovery from organic waste, thanks to their highly diverse metabolism," explains Puyol.

Barite deposition resulting from phototrophic
sulfide-oxidizing bacterial activity.
Biophotovoltaic cells contain some a type of cyanobacteria or algae that is phototrophic
. This property allows them to convert light into energy.
Isolation and characterization of phototrophic
bacteria growing in lighted up flow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor.
However, the development of plants and phototrophic
microorganisms is hindered by the lack of light in underground environments with limited opportunities for survival.
at Stanford University, she returned to WHOI as a postdoctoral fellow, working with Neubert and Johnson to study the impact of acquired phototrophic
organisms on marine ecosystems.

They are phototrophic
and are widely found in nature, especially in submerged habitats that are exposed to sunlight, such as rice paddies, sewage dumping sites, and riverbeds.
