of the deep-sea seyphozoan Atolla wyvillei

  title={of the deep-sea seyphozoan Atolla wyvillei},
  author={Peter J. Herring},
The bioluminescent responses of specimens of the deep-sea scyphozoan Atolla wyvillei, collected in the North East Atlantic and Southern Oceans between 1978 and 1984, were investigated. They include propagated waves of light travelling around both the coronal groove and/or various sites on the umbrella margin. The re- sponses are non-polarised, there may be multiple waves resulting from a single stimulus, and propagation veloc- ities range from 70 to 490 mm s -1. Isolated luminous areas at the… 



Bioluminescence in the Monterey Submarine Canyon: image analysis of video recordings from a midwater submersible

Video images of bioluminescence were recorded in situ during a 1985 study of the midwater environment of the Monterey Canyon, using a single-person, untethered submersible. Gelatinous organisms were

Observations on luminescence in pelagic animals

The intensities of light emitted by some pelagic species of animals are measured to discuss more profitably such biological problems as the role of luminescence in intraspecific signalling, sex recognition, swarming, and attraction or repulsion between species.

The Ca2+-sensitive photoproteins of coelenterates have been most frequently studied and most widely used, and are overwhelmingly popular compared with other types.
