Eco Preservation : The brilliance of bioluminescence

Some lucky animals are naturally endowed with bioluminescence, or the ability to create light. The firefly, the anglerfish, and a few more surprising creatures use this ability in many ways, including survival, hunting, and mating. Leslie Kenna investigates this magical glow - and our quest to replicate it. We have already posted an article ECO-PRESERVATION : BIOLUMINESCENCE here we share... Continue Reading →

Eco-Preservation : Bioluminescence

Bioluminescence is the production and emission of light by a living organism. Bioluminescence occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms and terrestrial invertebrates. Some symbiotic organisms carried within larger organisms produce light. Before the development of the safety lamp for use in coal mines, dried fish skins were used in Britain and Europe as a weak source of light Bioluminescence... Continue Reading →
