Bioluminescence spans all oceanic dimensions and has evolved many times--from bacteria to fish--to powerfully influence behavioral and ecosystem dynamics. New methods and technology have brought great advances in understanding of the molecular basis of bioluminescence, its physiological control, and its significance in marine communities. Novel tools derived from understanding the chemistry of natural light-producing molecules have led to countless valuable applications, culminating recently in…

TLDR
Recent advances in understanding bioluminescence in the ocean are reviewed and future research efforts that will unite molecular details with ecological and evolutionary relationships are highlighted.
Repeated and Widespread Evolution of Bioluminescence in Marine Fishes
TLDR
It is shown that exceptional species richness occurs particularly in deep-sea fishes with intrinsic bioluminescent systems and both shallow water anddeep-sea lineages with luminescence systems used for communication.

TLDR
To facilitate future research in this field, the recent attempt, the bioluminescent organism DNA barcode initiative is introduced, which will provide resources for other scientists to efficiently identify unstudied biolUMinescent organisms, focus their biochemical and genetic research goals, and will generally promote biolauminescence as a field of scientific study.
The Ecology of Bioluminescence
TLDR
This chapter explores the origins, ecology and future prospects of bioluminescence in detail in detail.
Bioluminescence in Fishes: Diversity and Functions
TLDR
L Luminescence in fishes can be divided in two different types of light production, and fish species with intrinsic bioluminescence show their own luciferin-luciferase sytem in specialized light organs.
Light emission miracle in the sea and preeminent applications of bioluminescence in recent new biotechnology.
Understanding Bioluminescence in Dinoflagellates—How Far Have We Come?
TLDR
The literature on the cellular mechanisms, molecular evolution, diversity, and ecology of bioluminescence in dinoflagellates is reviewed, highlighting significant discoveries of the last quarter of a century.
Species-specific bioluminescence facilitates speciation in the deep sea
TLDR
It is shown, for the first time, that deep-sea fishes that possess species-specific bioluminescent structures (e.g., lanternfishes, dragonfishes) are diversifying into new species at a more rapid rate than deep-SEA fishes that utilize biol Luminescence in ways that would not promote isolation of populations.
Bioluminescence and Pigments
TLDR
In this chapter, the diversity of pigments present in different tissues of the light organs and their role in the alteration of theLight emitted from bioluminescent organisms are discussed.

Bioluminescent and Red-Fluorescent Lures in a Deep-Sea Siphonophore
TLDR
A deep-sea siphonophore that twitches glowing lures to attract fish suggests that long-wavelength light plays a greater role in marine interactions than previously suspected.
Biological diversity, chemical mechanisms, and the evolutionary origins of bioluminescent systems
TLDR
It is estimated that bioluminescence may have arisen independently as many as 30 times in the course of evolution, and there are several examples of cross-phyletic similarities among the substrates.
Bioluminescence and the Pelagic Visual Environment
TLDR
It is made that, given the degree to which light has shaped life in the pelagic realm, the authors should expect to find comparable adaptations to the bioluminescent light field.
Bioluminescence in the high Arctic during the polar night
TLDR
Examination of the composition and activity of the planktonic community during the polar night in the high Arctic Kongsfjord, Svalbard provides evidence for a diel vertical migration of bioluminescent zooplankton that does not correspond to any externally detectable changes in illumination.

Bioluminescence in dinoflagellates, unicellular aquatic organisms, has attracted considerable attention, primarily due to the striking nature of this phenomenon-during blooms, disturbances in the
