No matter how small, organisms respond to their surrounding environment. A group of scientists at the University of Cambridge has shown that the light produced by ocean organisms is related to the stress their cells are under at the time.
The team, led by professor Raymond Goldstein of the university’s Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, wanted to see how such organisms would respond to threats analogous to a predator or the pressure of a wave. The scientists modeled much of their research on work done by Michael Latz and his colleagues at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California, San Diego.
In their published study, the researchers reported they held controlled…READ MORE
