Abstract:

My long-term goal is to continue investigation of marine bioluminescence with emphasis on its mechanisms and adaptive significance. The ubiquity of marine bioluminescence, the huge variety of its underlying molecular and physiological processes and regulatory behavior, when compared with the scarcity of knowledge in all these sub-disciplines argues that marine bioluminescence most probably has major unknown significance to life in the sea Case et al., 1995.
