Red bioluminescence in fishes: on the suborbital photophores of Malacosteus, Pachystomias and Aristostomias
Many deep-sea animals produce blue bioluminescence, but species of three genera of midwater dragonfishes also produce red light. In addition to numerous small body photophores, species of these… Expand
Far Red Bioluminescence from Two Deep-Sea Fishes
Spectral measurements of red bioluminescence were obtained from the deep-sea stomiatoid fishes Aristostomias scintillans (Gilbert) and Malacosteus niger (Ayres). Red luminescence from suborbital… Expand
Bioluminescence in the deep sea: free-fall lander observations in the Atlantic Ocean off Cape Verde
A novel autonomous free-fall lander vehicle, with a capability down to 6000 m, was deployed off Cape Verde for studies on bioluminescence in the deep sea. The system was equipped with a… Expand
Some features of the bioluminescence of the radiolarianThalassicolla sp.
- P. J. Herring
- 1 September 1979
The luminescence of the solitary radiolarianThalassicolla sp. has a spectral emission maximum at 446±4 nm and the luminescence of crude homogenates can be activated by calcium ions. Electrical… Expand
Correlation of bioluminescence emissions with ventral photophores in the mesopelagic squidAbralia veranyi (Cephalopoda: Enoploteuthidae)
Specimens of the squidAbralia veranyi were collected off the Bahamas in 1989. The bioluminescence of the ventral photophores was recorded on videotape at 11 to 12°C and 24°C, in conjunction with… Expand
A system for the collection of comparative emission spectra suitable for shipboard use
A simple data acquisition and control system has been developed for the measurement of the spectral emission from bioluminescent animals. A programmable calculator system is used to control a… Expand
