In English, many things are named after a particular country – but have you ever wondered what those things are called in those countries?
- Some species are capable of producing their own light through bioluminescence, which also makes fireflies glow.
- Scientists also have not identified the internal pathways or mechanisms in the organisms that trigger physiological responses to flow, such as bioluminescence and changes in growth rate, nutrient uptake, and structure.
- We are cautioned against confusing bioluminescence with fluorescence and phosphorescence.
- New hatchlings, which instinctively head toward the brightest spot on the horizon, confuse urban lights with the ocean's reflection of moonlight, starlight and bioluminescence in the water.
- Chemistry and biophysics of bioluminescence.
- In light of their special adaptations related to bioluminescence, buoyancy, crypsis, feeding, intelligence, speed, and vision, they are generally considered to be among the most highly evolved marine invertebrates.
- The relatively large shear forces that stimulate dinoflagellate bioluminescence are higher than typical levels of oceanic turbulence.
- How do flows trigger physiological responses such as bioluminescence in organisms, or changes in growth rate, nutrient uptake, and cell structure?
- Ultimately he entered the field experimentally with a study on the pseudoflash with J. W. Hastings, soon to attain prominence in the molecular biology of bioluminescence and circadian biology.
- Dinoflagellate bioluminescence differs biochemically from that of other major luminescent groups.
- This is because some species are capable of bioluminescence, in which chemicals made by the organism produce light in a chemical reaction.
- It is possible that fluorescence in these medusae represents a daylight functional analog of bioluminescence (similar to ‘blanching’ in comb jellies ).
- Although its biochemistry is well understood and is applied for various scientific techniques, the survival value of bioluminescence to the organisms themselves often remains unclear.
- You can find more books, videos, and software about deep sea life, marine biology, and bioluminescence at the web site above.
- This new technology, an imaging method known as in vivo bioluminescence, enables investigators to track changes in the viral population in the same animal day after day.
- Rapid control of wound infections by targeted photodynamic therapy monitored by in vivo bioluminescence imaging
- The chemiluminescent reactions found in living organisms are called bioluminescence.
- While it is evident why certain organisms display bioluminescence, some organisms such as mushrooms glow for unknown reasons.
- Most studies that report in vivo bioluminescence emission spectra or describe the color of bioluminescence only deal with the adults.
- The luminescence was quantified in live cells using bioluminescence imaging.
English has borrowed many of the following foreign expressions of parting, so you’ve probably encountered some of these ways to say goodbye in other languages.
Many words formed by the addition of the suffix –ster are now obsolete - which ones are due a resurgence?
