>Cypridinid ostracods, also known as sea fireflies, leave a trail of light in their wake as they swim. The bioluminescence of these tiny crustaceans attracts mates and helps protect them from predators. But unlike unrelated winged fireflies, these seafarers create light outside of their bodies by spewing a trail of mucus containing an enzyme and substrate that react with each other to produce the glow. A new report illuminates how ostracod species produce different lengths of flashes through various combinations of enzymes and different amounts of substrates, researchers reported January 16 in Proceedings of the Royal Society B.

From a Feb. 7, 2019 article by CAROLYN WILKE in The Scientist.

N.M. Hensley et al., “Phenotypic evolution shaped by current enzyme function in the bioluminescent courtship signals of sea fireflies,” P Roy Soc B, doi:10.1098/rspb.2018.2621, 2019.

In the above picture, taken by TREVOR J. RIVERS, an ostracod leaves a swirling trail of light. In the top-left of this photo, the ostracod is trapped in a fish’s mouth and the bioluminescence moves through the fish’s gills and into the water.






Of course, REAL Crustacea News will be censored on /n/.



REAL News always is.



Bio-luminescence on the outside of their bodies!

What is going on in here?



I heard it was the dubs thread.



It isn't.



Then explain those dubs.



Faces of meth?


Im new here. I am killcen's daughter. He told me about this chatroom. My father has a meth problem and some personal psychological demons to deal with. He is being admitted to a special hospital that specializes in helping people with his particular problem. Please pray for my father, that Jesus might cure his mind. Thankyou.




this chatroom is fun, but weird. how do i LIKE someone here?



You don't.

That would defeat the entire purpose.

Nobody likes anybody around here. It just works that way. Don't ask my why. If you don't like it you can always SAGE! A Sage is the same as a down vote here.



I heard that meth isn't even a real "problem" for anybody! I mean not a serious problem, like religion is.



I thought sage was just to reply without bumping an article?



That's what you get for thinking.

We don't do much of that around here either.



You don't say!



Actually, I do.

in case you missed the memo

cheeky bump




You are a fucking idiot. Go ahead and surround yourself with false rumors and accusations, typical for average morons to do anyway.








Meanwhile, Killcen is still spreading the REAL News over here:





You should try Xanax. I heard it'll help bring you down off the Meth Buzz.



Come on, Johnny..

You know you want to head on over where >>740334 told you to..


It is also very comfy, just like this bioluminescent mucus-drenched one is!
